The NSW government has launched a campaign urging people only to get tested for COVID-19 if they have symptoms after the state recorded 35,054 new cases and eight deaths.
The number of people in hospital with COVID has risen to 1,491, up from 1,344, with 119 patients in intensive care.
Billboards and mobile phone alerts have been rolled out this morning in an effort to educate people about the new testing rules.
People are being urged to only get tested if they have symptoms or have been advised by health authorities.
Under the recent changes to isolation and testing, more people exposed to the virus can use rapid antigen tests instead of PCR testing.
