NSW has recorded 174 new Covid-19 cases and zero deaths amid fears of a superspreader event in Sydney.
As of Friday, 14 people who had attended a funeral service at the Wanda Surf Club in Cronulla on November 18 had tested positive to Covid-19.
At least 600 people are understood to have attended the service, before many headed to a wake at Highfield Caringbah afterwards.
NSW Health has urged anyone who attended the funeral or wake to get tested immediately, even if they are fully vaccinated or do not have any symptoms.
NSW restrictions are set to ease on December 15, with all density limits being scrapped, QR-code check-in requirements lessened and vaccinated hospitality staff will no longer need to wear masks.
A major change in the reopening will be students who are identified as “close contacts” not needing to isolate.
Masks will still be required on public transport, planes and at airports, and venues will be able to scrap the 2sq m rule.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has begun urging Australians to get the booster vaccine to prevent lockdowns in 2022, with more than 151 million Pfizer and AstraZeneca shots ordered for the third dose.
