Gladys Berejiklian says there were 1542 new confirmed cases and nine deaths in the past 24 hours.
She says that’s in line with modelling provided to the government.
So far, 76.4 per cent of NSW residents have had one dose of vaccine and 43.6 per cent are fully vaccinated.
Berejiklian has also reminded people that some restrictions will ease from Monday.
People who live outside the LGAs of concern will be able to have a picnic with other household members so long as the adults are vaccinated. The gathering must also occur within the usual five-kilometre radius.
Berejiklian says there has been a spike in cases in Canterbury Bankstown and authorities want “everybody in that area to be extra cautious”.
Redfern and Glebe have also emerged as areas of concern.
“Please be on alert, do not let down your guard,” Berejiklian says. “We are doing incredibly well as far as vaccinations are concerned, but please follow the health orders and if you are home and breathless you should be ringing one of the people at the NSW ambulance to make sure you get to hospital because deterioration can occur quickly.”
