The Sanctuary Point Respiratory Clinic is urging the community to come forward for COVID testing as they have seen a drop off in tests.
The clinic has seen a drop in testing by 25-30 per cent in the last 10 days, compared to a month ago.
Sanctuary Point Repiratory Clinic Director, Dr Kate Manderson said the virus hasn't gone away and asked anyone with symptoms to come forward and get tested.
"That message just hasn't changed, we need to test people to make sure we are staying on top of it or we'll end up with another Melbourne and go into lockdown before school holidays," Dr Manderson said.
"State-wide we are also seeing numbers down 50 per cent to what they were two weeks ago."
The NSW Health advice is that anyone feeling unwell, even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat, should come forward and get tested, so cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible.
Dr Manderson said because NSW's case numbers were looking good some people are assuming that it's not COVID.
"People with their first sniffle got tested and it wasn't COVID therefore they're assuming their next sniffle isn't COVID, but it just could be so we've got to check them.
"People are assuming they are one of the 99 per cent who don't have it."
Typically the Sanctuary Point clinic would be seeing over 30 people a day for testing and now they are down to 10-20 a day.
Since the Sanctuary Point Repiratory Clinic opened in May it has conducted almost 3000 swabs.
Dr Manderson stressed that if people have symptoms they should be isolating and acting like they have COVID-19 until they receive the all clear.
