New South Wales has recorded 17 new coronavirus cases and the first death in nearly three months.

An 83-year-old man died on Saturday morning after being linked to the cluster of cases from the Crossroads Hotel, the NSW Department of Health revealed.

The state's total number of cases has now jumped to 3,584 and the death toll to 52.

Of the new cases, three are in hotel quarantine, one is from a returning resident from Victoria while two cases are linked to the Apollo restaurant.

Two more infections were linked to the Mounties Club in Mount Pritchard and seven were from contacts of known cases.  

It comes as the prominent Bavarian pub in Manly was forced to close for deep cleaning after a customer tested positive to the deadly virus.
