The premier has urged the community to take “personal responsibility” as lockdown measures are eased across the state.

New South Wales has recorded eight new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours, with 12,200 people tested in that time.

That’s the highest number of new cases in 10 days.

One of the new cases includes a traveller who flew from Brisbane to Sydney on QANTAS flight QF537, arriving at 4.05pm on Tuesday.

There are fears new clusters could develop as restrictions are rolled back.

From today, five people can visit another household, 10 people can gather outside and 10 people can dine in at cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Social distancing measures are still in place and the 1.5 metre rule must be adhered to.

“I know some may even have already started enjoying the new freedoms that come with easing restrictions today but that also comes with personal responsibility and can’t stress that enough,” Gladys Berejiklian said.
