Update 3.45pm: A note on how the new cases are allocated
The DHHS notes residential location is the residential address provided when the case is notified.
It says this is not where they caught the infection and may not be where the case currently resides.
Numbers are correct as of 11.59pm Tuesday night but are subject to change as cases are followed up and data is analysed.
"Active cases" are defined as someone who has tested positive, is currently in isolation and being monitored by the Department and who has not yet recovered.
