Health officials are encouraging locals to book in to get their boosters as soon as they are eligible to increase their chances of not contracting the virus or to minimise the severity of the virus if they do catch it.

Cases have exploded across the state with the Omicron variant which has caused testing to blow out with some locals reporting up to 10 days before they receive their results.

Rapid Antigen Tests are also in short supply with the NSW Government urging locals to stay home if they are unwell and treat the situation as if they have the virus.
