New South Wales has reported 35 new locally-acquired COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, although 24 were in isolation while infectious and another four had been partially isolating. The new cases include three people who attended a party at an inner-Sydney hotel in breach of lockdown rules, as well as two additional residents of an aged-care home. There are now 312 active cases state-wide. Professor Raina MacIntyre believes that the state must record no more than five new cases of community transmission on 8 July for lockdown restrictions in Greater Sydney to be eased on the following day. Meanwhile, more than 600 health workers at two Sydney hospitals are self-isolating after being deemed to be close contacts of an unvaccinated student nurse who had worked at both hospitals while she was infectious with Covid-19.
