NSW has registered 813 new Covid-19 cases and 10 deaths as the outbreak continues to wane in the state.

dr. Jeremy McAnulty urged sports fans to act responsibly ahead of the NRL Grand Final to be held at Brisbane’s Lang Stadium on Sunday.

The massive sporting event is expected to draw tens of thousands of spectators and thousands more to watch the match from their televisions in NSW.

Non-emergency day surgery will resume Tuesday in private health facilities as Covid-19 transfer rates continue to decline.

But non-emergency surgeries in NSW public hospitals remain on hold.

“This is to ensure we maintain sufficient system capacity, as well as patient, staff and public safety, for the delivery of health services during the COVID-19 response,” NSW Health said in a statement.

“During this challenging period, emergency and emergency elective surgeries will be performed in public hospitals.”

The cases come as non-emergency day surgery will resume Tuesday in private health facilities as Covid-19 transfer rates continue to fall.
