The Shoalhaven has recorded two new cases of COVID-19, brining the total number of cases in the region to 14.
Both cases are based in Nowra and are household contacts of known cases, according to South Coast MP Shelley Hancock.
The two new cases were announced by NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro in Wednesday's 11am press conference.
The numbers come as the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District records 33 new COVID-19 cases, with 24 recorded in the Wollongong Local Government Area, seven in the Shellharbour Local Government Area and two in the Shoalhaven.
There is one potential case under investigation in Kiama.
Five cases of COVID-19 were also recorded in the Wingecarribee Shire, and one case was recorded in Batemans Bay.
Mr Barilaro said lifting regional LGAs from the statewide lockdown on Friday, September 10, would most likely depend on areas having no case numbers.
