Albury Thunder won't be part of the Group Nine season but Southern Inland are still planning on Border representation this season.
Albury have committed to having a second grade and women's side this season, while Deniliquin is also in second grade, and Southern Inland won't stand in their way of taking to the field at this stage.
While NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian advised against travel to and from Border communities last week no formal rule has been introduced.
As such Southern Inland are planning to proceed with seven-team competitions in both second grade and women's.
"We are comfortable with them being involved and continue to plan for that to happen," rugby manager Jack Heffernan said.
"We can be flexible around that if we have to be for the first week or two but with no further confirmed cases following the couple they had at the start of last week I think things are positive there."
Heffernan confirmed a number of clubs have raised concerns over the situation.
"I have had a couple of clubs speak to me about it, mostly just being concerned, but the clubs who asked the questions weren't going to see Albury for some time anyway," Heffernan said.
"They are aware things can change before then but it was mostly asking questions then specific concerns around it and just wanted to see where we were at and how we were approaching it."
Southern Inland will start their first grade season on Saturday with second grade and women's competitions to come in on July 25.
Wagga City hosts CSU at Conolly Rugby Complex while Waratahs head to Tumut in first grade.
The following Saturday Wagga City then hosts Albury in second grade and women's, while their first grade plays Waratahs, while Deniliquin travel to Jarrah Oval for second grade as Tumut's first grade tackles CSU in Wagga.
Given the situation, Southern Inland will keep their options open.
"It is not like we are sitting idle but we are waiting to see what happens and if nothing happens then we are happy to keep going the way we are," Heffernan said.
