As the NSW COVID-19 outbreak, and the South Australian outbreak before it, and the Victorian outbreak before that has highlighted, this COVID-19 crisis is not going away without a vaccine.

The news out of NSW has had border restrictions begin to fly on up, and with that much change, so quickly, it’s incredibly difficult to keep across what is happening and when.

At present, we can tell you that there are currently 104 active cases connected to the outbreak in NSW (as ABC reports).

If you’re a NSW resident and you’re trying to stay across all the local updates, there’s an incredibly useful interactive map available on Google that may help.

The regularly-updated map shows currently identified COVID-19 contact tracing locations across New South Wales so folks know which sites have been impacted and whether or not they need to act after having visited them.

It’s been divvied up into sections: ‘Close Contacts, Get Tested Immediately’; ‘Casual Contacts, Get Tested Immediately and Self-Isolate’, and ‘Monitor For Symptoms’.

The list of venues in the ‘Close Contacts’ currently include (as of December 30, 12:19am):
