About the data

The data is for people tested for COVID-19 and is based on location of residence reported at the time of the test. A surge in total number of people tested on a particular day may occur as the test results are updated in batches and new laboratories gain testing capacity.

The Government has obligations under the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 in relation to the collection, use and disclosure of the personal, including the health information, of individuals. Information about NSW Privacy laws is available here: https://data.nsw.gov.au/understand-key-data-legislation.   

The information collected about people who were tested does not include any information to directly identify individuals, such as their name, date of birth or address. However, it does include information about their age and gender and the location they reported that they lived at the time of the test. Therefore, the underlying dataset was assessed to measure the risk of identifying an individual and the level of sensitivity of the information gained if it was known that an individual was in the dataset. The dataset was then treated to mitigate these risks, including suppressing and aggregating data.

Other governments and private sector bodies also have legal obligations in relation to the protection of personal, including health, information. The Government does not authorise any reproduction or visualisation of the data on this website which includes any representation or suggestion in relation to the personal or health information of any individual. The Government does not endorse or control any third party websites including products and services offered by, from or through those websites or their content.
