The state has recorded 1220 new cases today with eight new deaths to 8PM last night.
The new numbers come as the state records a rise in vaccination rates with 74 percent of NSW residents now vaccinated with their first dose.
While Covid case numbers continue to climb in some regions, Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced that restrictions could be lifted for some parts of the state where case numbers are low and vaccinations are high.
"Our indication is that everyone who has 70 per cent double vaccination enjoys the benefits of being fully vaccinated," she said.
