IRT Tarrawanna Aged Care Centre spokeswoman confirmed all residents tested negative in the previous 24 hours while one employee recorded a positive result for the infection during the recent outbreak.
The employee was fully vaccinated and had been caring for the residents with COVID-19.
"We are currently caring for 20 residents who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the care centre. One resident was transferred to Wollongong Hospital yesterday for further treatment," the spokeswoman said.
"Unfortunately we are still seeing some residents declining due to their age and underlying medical conditions. We are monitoring these residents closely with the support of the virtual community care team," the spokeswoman said.
"Testing will continue until we are confident the outbreak is over."
Sadly, four men died overnight across the state. Two men were in their 60s, one man was in their 70s, and one man was in their 80s. Two men were from western Sydney, and two men were from south western Sydney.
Three men were not vaccinated and one man had received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The first dose vaccination figure for people over 16 has ticked over 93 per cent, with full inoculation at 84.4 per cent for that demographic.
In the past 24 hours, 1,117 first doses were administered while 10,904 people received their second jab.
Meanwhile, the NSW government unveiled a new tourism campaign to sell the state to domestic and international visitors as it reopens.
Premier Dominic Perrottet and Tourism Minister Stuart Ayres on Sunday launched the advertising campaign, titled "Feel New South Wales".
It features some of NSW's most treasured locations as well as a cover of Nina Simone's 1965 classic Feeling Good by Northern Beaches artist Azure Ryder and Sydney-based band Breathe.
The campaign cost "a couple of million dollars" to produce and about $10 million has been allocated so far to promote it in TV, print and social media.
"Too often we've relied on on the buildings, the (Sydney Harbour) Bridge, the heart of the Opera House and the harbour," Mr Ayres told reporters.
"They are exceptionally beautiful. There's no doubt about that. But this campaign is about moving a bit beyond them to be able to say they're always going to be there."
