325 new locally acquired Covid cases recorded in NSW
NSW has recorded 325 cases of Covid-19 and one more death.
The daily figures remain relatively stable despite concerns over a new variant.
There are 139 people in hospital with Covid-19 across NSW, including 25 patients in intensive care.
There were 337 new cases recorded on Friday and one of them, a student at Regents Park Christian School in western Sydney, was found to have the Omicron strain.
NSW Health said it was concerned the virus had already spread within the community as the student has no overseas travel history or links to people with overseas travel history.
It was later revealed that two more students from the Christian school contracted the Omicron variant while genome testing was still underway for a further 10 people.
It forced the entire K-12 school to be dismissed for the year with all staff and students identified as close contacts and directed to quarantine.
