NSW has recorded 667 locally acquired cases, and 10 deaths, as Greater Sydney marks 100 days in lockdown.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard urged residents to be careful ahead of the NRL grand final game. "Your home remains one of the most dangerous places to be in terms of transmission of the virus,” he said.

From October 11, anyone in NSW who is a close contact of a positive case and is vaccinated, will be required to get tested and self-isolate for seven days instead of 14.
