New South Wales has seen an uptick in community transmission of coronavirus, putting the state on high alert to prevent further spread.
Many cases can be traced back to the Crossroads hotel cluster and the Thai Rock restaurant in Wetherill Park, but new locations have cropped up in the news briefings each day.
Here’s an overview of the state’s current hotspots and what to do if you’ve visited them. More detailed information is available at the NSW Health website.
