Border restrictions for NSW residents planning to travel interstate have again relaxed, as the state notches up a sixth consecutive day without a local virus case.
The state recorded zero new local cases in the 24 hours to 8pm on Friday, but one case was uncovered in a traveller in hotel quarantine. Some 11,343 people were tested in the period.
Victorian authorities reopened the border to almost all of Sydney after the state recorded its fifth straight day without local cases on Friday.
Barring the Cumberland local government area, all Greater Sydney LGAs - as well as Wollongong and the Blue Mountains - were downgraded to "orange" on Victoria's health alert system from 6pm on Friday.
People travelling to Victoria from an "orange" zone will need to apply for a permit, get tested within 72 hours of their arrival and isolate until they receive a negative result. However they will not be barred entry.
The Cumberland LGA takes in Berala, the centre of a 35-person virus cluster, and its residents remain locked out of Victoria.
Western Australia also relaxed their restrictions, with NSW residents no longer banned from entering the state.
Travellers will still be required to self-isolate for 14 days and get a COVID-19 test.
