Today’s tally is slightly less than yesterday’s (190), which was less than the day before (212).
The state’s total number of cases stands at 1405.
Of those, 877 cases are acquired overseas and 278 are locally acquired, but they are contacts of a confirmed case or part of a known cluster.
The locally acquired number with contact non-identified is 145.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said community transmission is the most concerning because you can monitor the source for returned travellers, whereas you might not know where community transmission came from.
The Premier has urged people to stay home and flagged tougher self-isolation laws.
The announcement comes as NSW has issued its first fines for people failing to comply with restrictions already in place.
A media release from NSW Police confirmed a massage owner, three staff members and a returned traveller from Lake Macquarie were the first to be issued with fines, which are $1000 for individuals and $5000 for businesses.
The massage parlour on Sussex Street in Sydney was still operating in defiance of the order yesterday.
The traveller was a 65-year-old woman who returned from Bali on March 21 and was told to quarantine, but police were informed she had left her home on Thursday morning.
“No one is above the law,” NSW Police Minister David Elliott said.
“If you decide to ignore a direction, you will be caught, and you may very well find yourself slapped with a hefty fine.”
There are currently 134 people in NSW receiving care, including 19 in the ICU and 53 in hospitals.
