Confirmed COVID-19 cases have occurred in New South Wales.

To find up-to-date locations in NSW that COVID-19 has affected — known as ‘hotspots’ — visit and click on ‘Case locations and statistics’.

If you’ve been to any of the locations on the dates and times listed, you will need to either:

  • quarantine at home and get tested immediately, or
  • monitor for symptoms, and get tested if you have even just mild symptoms

If you live in — or have been to — the following local government areas (LGAs) in the past 2 weeks and have even mild symptoms, you should get tested:

  • Bankstown (suburb)
  • Blue Mountains

  • Mt Druitt (suburb)

COVID-19 testing clinics

There are testing clinics all over NSW — including ‘pop-up’ and drive-through clinics. To find one near you, go to and select ‘Get tested’.

You can use the map or search clinics by region. The listings will tell you the address and any directions, the opening times and whether you can book online.

You can also get tested at GP clinics.

COVID-19 testing is free at NSW public clinics, even if you’re not eligible for Medicare.
