NSW Deputy Premier has confirmed a new COVID-19 case was recorded in Batemans Bay overnight, a close contact of the previous three recorded last week.
"At this stage, there are no exposure sites in Batemans Bay, and NSW Health will update as they receive more information," he said.
Mr Barilaro rejected suggestions NSW Health was withholding information about new cases.

"I apologise if people think we are withholding information, but that's not the case," he said.
"As much as we love getting prompt information out there, the last thing we want is wrong information.
"It's important to tell people about the cases so they are vigilant, and the second part is to put new exposure sites as we learn them."
The Southern NSW Local Health District recorded four new COVID-19 cases overnight, two in Queanbeyan, one in Yass and one in Batemans Bay.
