New South Wales has recorded 22 new locally-acquired COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, although 11 were self-isolating while they were infectious. Premier Gladys Berejiklian has welcomed the lack of a spike in case numbers, and says the state may be on track to lift the lockdown of Greater Sydney and nearby regions as scheduled on 9 July. An unvaccinated student nurse has also tested positive and will be included in the daily case numbers for 1 July; she worked at the Fairfield and Royal North Shore hospitals while she was infectious, prompting the state government to order patients and staff who may have come into contact with her to be tested and self-isolate. Meanwhile, Victoria has reported one new locally-acquired case, while there are three new cases in Queensland and one in Western Australia.
