NSW Health has stated that the risk of infection in NSW is considered low. They have not listed any places in NSW that should be avoided and are currently putting procedures in place to prevent the spread of the disease.
If you have concerns about your health, or the health of a family member or friend in NSW, please contact:

Your GP or Hospital Emergency Department – if you are unwell, and have either travelled to an affected area or been in contact with a patient with coronavirus in the past 14 days, it is important to phone ahead so they can make appropriate preparations and protect others.
