COVID cases continue to grow in regional areas.
Deputy Premier John Barilaro highlighted 37 new cases were recorded in Western NSW, 23 in Dubbo, five in Parkes, two in Bourke, two in Wellington, one in Coonamble and two in Gilgandra.
Another 14 cases were recorded in Wilcannia, one in Hunter/New England, three in Illawarra/Shoalhaven and three on the Central Coast.
Mr Barilaro said there was a real focus on getting regional areas vaccinated.
"We want to keep vaccination rates high we want to keep up with what's occurring in Sydney," he said.
Mr Barilaro said 41 per cent of eligible adults in the Edward River local government area were double dosed.
NSW has recorded 753 cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm Monday.
Of which only 73 were isolating throughout their infectious period. 71 were infectious while in the community and the isolation status of 609 is not yet known.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said NSW had already hit six million COVID vaccinations.
She said about 60 per cent of the population across the state had one dose.
Ms Berejiklian said she hopes to be able to make announcements about what restrictions could ease shortly.
In the 24 hours to 8pm yesterday 48,761 vaccines were administered and 138,000 tests were received.
On Monday, Ms Berejiklian said the community was experienced 'roller-coaster ride of emotions' as daily case numbers rose and fell.
She said instead of focusing on the case numbers people should focus on the daily vaccination rate.
It comes as epidemiology and modelling expert Professor Allan Saul, from Melbourne's Burnet Institute, warned NSW could record 13,000 coronavirus cases a say by early October.
