Parts of Sydney’s south-west are on alert, after a new case of the Omicron variant was confirmed in the community. The man, in his 40s, arrived on a Qatar Airlines Flight from Doha last Thursday.. the same flight as a Central Coast woman, who has since tested positive to the new strain.

Authorities are urging calm.. with no changes to state borders for now.

But there is a chance that rules on face masks could be extended.
