NSW records 608 new local COVID-19 cases and seven deaths

New South Wales has recorded 608 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases and a further seven deaths.

The new deaths reported in the 24 hours to 8pm on Monday include six men and one woman. One person was in their 50s, two people were in their 60s, three in their 70s and one in their 80s.

Five people were not vaccinated, and two people had received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

NSW Health says 67.5 per cent of the eligible population aged 16 and over are fully vaccinated, while 88.5 per cent have had their first dose.

Hospital numbers are also dropping, with 978 people in hospital and 190 in intensive care.

Stay-at-home orders have been extended until 11 October in Taree, Forster-Tuncurry and Muswellbrook due to increasing case numbers in those areas.

96 cases are from Western Sydney, 65 are from Hunter New England and 51 are from the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health Districts.
