New South Wales has recorded three new locally acquired coronavirus cases after the virus spread between two different families staying in hotel quarantine.

Health authorities released the numbers on Sunday confirming that three people in one family got the virus from a family of four staying in an adjacent room in the Adina Apartment Hotel in Sydney’s CBD.

Both families have the same viral sequence prompting all travellers staying on level 12 of the hotel to be retested. So far the remaining guests have returned a negative result.

Health authorities released the numbers on Sunday confirming that three people in one family got the virus from a family of four staying in an adjacent room in the Adina Apartment Hotel in Sydney’s CBD 

Security staff from the Adina Apartments were either partially or fully vaccinated. 

Investigations are ongoing as to how the virus could have spread between the two parties, as both groups arrived to the hotel on different days and from different countries. 

Health authorities say the family of four were infectious between April 8 and 11.

Both families have been moved to the Special Health Accommodation to be treated.    

They will remain at the accommodation site until they are no longer infectious. 

No other cases of Covid-19 were reported after 8,088 tested were conducted in the 24 hours to 8pm Saturday.
