Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has been notified of eight new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm Friday night.
It includes a new case in Narooma and four more in Batemans Bay, all linked to the Batemans Bay cluster.
This brings the total cases in SNSWLHD to 62 since the start of the current outbreak in June.
As well as the Narooma an Batemans Bay's new cases, there were also two confirmed positive cases in Jerrabomberra and are close contacts of existing cases, and one new case in Goulburn which is under investigation.
SNSWLHD is also urging the Eden community to get tested with even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms following the detection of fragments of the virus in the local sewage system in the last 48 hours.
It's the second detection of virus fragments in Eden's sewage in the past week.
There are no confirmed COVID-19 cases at Eden and SNSWLHD is concerned that the presence of these fragments could signal undetected cases in the community.
COVID-19 virus fragments were detected in Narooma's sewage on September 15 before any actual cases emerged.
The NSW Sewage Surveillance Program tests untreated sewage for fragments of the COVID-19 virus at sewage treatment plant locations across NSW.
Everyone in the district should be alert for any symptoms that could signal COVID-19 including headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever.
If symptoms appear, people must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
There are 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. A full list of SNSWLHD's clinic sites and hours is available by clicking here.
