New South Wales has reported no new locally-acquired COVID-19 cases for 11 consecutive days, but the number of cases among returned travellers has risen to 34.

Meanwhile, six returned travellers in hotel quarantine in Victoria have tested positive for COVID-19, and an additional 24 have symptoms of the virus.
