The fall in cases comes after the state reported 580 COVID-19 infections on Saturday, as the Delta outbreak begins to slow.
There are currently 794 people in hospital with COVID-19 including 159 in intensive care, 76 of whom are on a ventilator.
NSW recorded six COVID-19 related deaths overnight.
All six deaths were men, two in their 50s, one in the 60s and three in their 70s.
One man was from western Sydney, two from south western Sydney, two in Southern NSW and one in south eastern Sydney.
Five of the men were not vaccinated, while one had received one dose.
There were 86,155 tests received in the 24 hours to 8pm on Saturday, with vaccination rates surging as well.
More than 72 per cent of the eligible population in NSW has received both COVID-19 doses while more than 90 per cent have had at least one jab as the state approaches 11 million doses in total administered.
It comes after the state reported 580 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday as daily infections trend down and the Delta outbreak slows.
New South Wales hit the 70 per cent double dose vaccine milestone on Wednesday, triggering a relaxation of restrictions for Monday October 11.
The target was met as NSW residents prepare for a range of new freedoms to be restored to the vaccinated this Monday October 11.
The state will reopen at 12:01am after more than 100 days in lockdown.
More to come.
