However, from today, this will no longer happen.

Instead, NSW Health will publish this data in its surveillance reports.

"NSW Health is no longer reporting the number of linked and unlinked cases, and the isolation status, at 11am," a spokesperson for NSW Health told 9News.com.au.

"With current case volumes, this data is not a meaningful representation of case investigations.

"Updates on the outcomes of all case investigations are published in NSW Health's COVID-19 surveillance reports available online."

These are generally released weekly and can be found here.
