The state reopened to the fully vaccinated on Monday – more than 100 days after Sydneysiders were first plunged into lockdown on June 26 – after reaching its 70 per cent double-dose vaccine target last week.
Across NSW, 90.3 per cent of the eligible population have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine while 73.5 per cent are now fully vaccinated.
The local cases were found in 83,498 tests.

There are currently 769 coronavirus patients in hospital, with 153 of those receiving treatment in ICU. 
From now on NSW Health will release the daily COVID-19 figures at 9am after Premier Dominic Perrottet moved to scrap the 11am briefing. 
The 496 local COVID-19 infections came as restaurants, pubs and cafes in NSW reopened for dine-in service to the fully vaccinated on Monday.
Fitness lovers are also allowed to return to the gym, 10 people can visit a home, while weddings and funerals can host up to 100 people.
Further restrictions will be eased in NSW when 80 per cent of the eligible population are fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
