Update: Tests Dataset 

From 11 June, the COVID-19 tests datasets were updated to align with the new reporting methodology used by NSW Health. The new datasets are based on the number of tests notified instead of the number of people tested.

The COVID-19 tests datasets that were published prior to 11 June existing COVID-19 tests datasets are no longer being updated. However, they remain available and can be found here

The two new datasets now align with the change in reporting methodology. These datasets are the NSW COVID-19 tests by age range and NSW COVID-19 tests by location. The updated methodology is applied to all historical COVID-19 tests data. Refer to how NSW counts tests for more information.

Update: Case Locations Dataset (24 September 2020)

We have replaced the previous COVID-19 case locations dataset to make it easier to re-use. However, the historical data will remain available.

Update: "Likely source of infection" categories update (20 November 2020)

NSW Health updated the “likely source of infection” categories for locally acquired cases from 19 November 2020, in order to align with Commonwealth reporting requirements. These changes are reflected in the NSW COVID-19 cases by location and likely source of infection dataset and the NSW COVID-19 cases by likely source of infection dataset.

Previous categories for locally acquired cases 

  • Locally acquired - contact of a confirmed case and/or in a known cluster
  • Locally acquired - source not identified

New categories for locally acquired cases (from 19 November onwards)

  • Locally acquired - linked to known case or cluster
  • Locally acquired - no links to known case or cluster
  • Locally acquired - investigation ongoing

There is no change to the other categories – “overseas”, “interstate” and “under investigation”.

Update: New dataset - COVID-19 clinics (24 November 2020)

We have published a new dataset on COVID-19 testing and assessment clinics by geolocation, address, contact details, services provided and opening hours.
