The Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has been notified of two new COVID-19 cases in Queanbeyan.
The two new cases will be reported in tomorrow's numbers as the notifications came in after 8pm last night.
No venues of concern have been identified in relation to the two latest cases at this stage.
In the NSW press conference this morning, NSW chief health officer Kerry Chant said there were worrying signs in the Yass community.
"We've detected fragments of the virus in the Yass treatment plant," Ms Chant said.
"I'm particularly concerned by Yass where we're seeing an increase in the level of sewage detection.
"I ask those in Yass to come out for testing with the most minimal of symptoms and to follow all the public health advice."
Any venues of concern that are identified through contact tracing will be announced as soon as they are known.
Venues of concern are kept updated on the SNSWLHD website.
Everyone in the District should be alert for any symptoms that could signal COVID-19 including headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever.
If symptoms appear, people must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW and a full list is available here.
If you are eligible, please also come forward for vaccination as soon as possible.
