There were nine new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in NSW in the 24 hours to 8pm Saturday night, including one from a mystery source.
Of those nine, four were overseas travellers in hotel quarantine, two were linked to the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club cluster in Sydney and were already self isolating, another two were linked to the St Paul's Catholic College cluster at Greystanes and were also in self isolation, while one case was under investigation as to the source.
NSW Health said one known case visited KFC Concord (307 Concord Rd) September 6 between 1pm and 1:20pm. Anyone who attended the venue at this time is considered a casual contact and is asked to monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately, staying in isolation until they get a negative test result.

There are currently 83 COVID-19 cases across NSW, including six in intensive care - three of whom are being ventilated.
Eighty-six per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health are in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.

- Wash your hands regularly. Take hand sanitiser with you when you go out.
- Keep your distance. Leave 1.5 metres between yourself and others.
- Wear a mask on public transport, ride share, taxis, shopping, places of worship and other places where you can't physically distance.
