Covid is looming large over Christmas plans for many Sydney residents, despite a massive drop off in new case numbers. New South Wales today recorded 15 coronavirus cases, all of which are linked to the Northern Beaches - bringing the total cases linked to the cluster to 83. The area's been in lockdown since Saturday night, and a decision on whether further restrictions are needed for greater Sydney, will be made on Wednesday. ABC Sydney reporter Alexia Attwood was at Northern Beaches and told Checkpoint people there are nervous, but they are following the rules and things are looking hopeful.
