Full list of COVID-19 hotspots in NSW as Croydon COVID cases trigger new fears

Several pharmacies, shopping centres and an RSL club are some of the latest venues added to a rapidly growing list of COVID-19 hotspots in New South Wales.

18 new locally-acquired cases were reported in the state on Wednesday, including a new cluster that has emerged in Sydney’s inner-west.

The Croydon cluster accounts for six of the new cases, with all of those cases part of the same extended family including three children.

The source of that cluster is still unknown and there are growing fears that the coronavirus outbreak has spread far beyond the Northern Beaches.

Given the rapid rise in cases, Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Wednesday announced NYE restrictions for residents in Greater Sydney will be tightened.
