The Murrumbidgee Local Health District hasn't seen a new case of coronavirus since last week, with the latest update from authority showing no new cases confirmed in the region.
It's the fourth day running with no new diagnoses across the region, and number of recovered patients has doubled overnight to 10.
No new cases have been diagnosed in Wagga in six days.
It leaves the official running total of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the region at 42.
Those aged between 20 and 29 are heavily represented in the confirmed cases, with the 14 people in that age group diagnosed making up a large proportion of the health district's official tally.
Ten COVID-19 cases have been found in Wagga, seven in Federation Shire, six in Albury, five in Berrigan, three each in Griffith and Murrumbidgee, two apiece for Greater Hume and Hilltops councils and single diagnoses in Cootamundra-Gundagai, Hay, Narrandera and Snowy Valleys local government areas.
- Those suffering acute, cold, flu-like symptoms who have recently returned from travelling or are a contact of a confirmed case are urged to be tested for the virus. To do this, call HealthDirect on 1800 0222 222 to be triaged and advised by a nurse over the phone. Alternatively, contact your GP to book an appointment and let them know in advance if you have symptoms - these might include fever, cough, runny nose or shortness of breath.
