Premier Gladys Berejiklian says her government has not ruled out the easing of coronavirus restrictions despite a slight uptick in new cases in New South Wales in recent days.

"I'm always concerned when we have new cases of community transmission but it shouldn't preclude us from looking at what opportunities we have in the next few weeks," she said.

"The health experts and economists are giving dual advice on what we can consider in the next few weeks."

The state recorded five new cases of community transmission overnight but all originated from known clusters.

Ms Berejiklian said the state had demonstrated a world-class system, urging the Palaszczuk government to compare the NSW health response with that of any other country with a similar-sized population, as she continued to push Queensland to open its borders.
