Coronavirus latest news2

Sydney has chalked up another day of only a single locally transmitted coronavirus case, only days after the Queensland government declared it was still a coronavirus hotspot.

Four cases were reported in overseas travellers in hotel quarantine, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 4236.

Not a single locally acquired case was detected from 14,751 tests in the 24 hours to 8pm on Saturday. One case was recorded after the deadline and will be included in Sunday's numbers.

The case is the second child authorities believe acquired the virus at Flip Out Prestons Indoor Trampoline Park.

The other child, who also attended the park at the same time as a known case, was diagnosed late on Thursday night.

Anyone who attended the park from 11am to 2pm on October 25 is considered a close contact and must get tested immediately and isolate for a full 14 days regardless of the result.

Anyone who attended the venue after 2pm that day is a casual contact and must monitor for symptoms.

NSW Health is also urging anyone who attended a restaurant in Liverpool at the same time as an infected person to come forward, after details of some patrons weren't logged.

The confirmed cases visited Jasmins Lebanese Restaurant in Liverpool on October 25 from 2pm to 3.30pm.

Anyone at the restaurant for at least an hour at this time is considered a close contact and must get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days.

A public health alert has also been issued for Spendless Shoes at Westfield Liverpool on October 28.

Anyone who visited the store between 4pm and 4.20pm is a casual contact and must monitor for symptoms.

The sustained low rate of cases in Sydney continues as Queensland prepares to open its border to everyone but those in Greater Sydney and Victoria.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk on Friday announced travel restrictions will ease from 1am on Tuesday, drawing the ire of the NSW premier who says Sydney is no longer a hotspot.

Queensland Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young on Friday praised NSW's contact tracing and said there was "a strong possibility" Queensland would open to Sydney once NSW was on top of its community outbreaks.
