BATHURST'S sole remaining active COVID-19 case has recovered, according to the Western NSW Local Health District.
As of 10am on Thursday, according to the health district's latest update, there remained 45 cases of coronavirus in Western NSW.
Only four cases were active, however, after the person in the Bathurst Regional council area was given the all-clear by health workers.
Those still sick with the virus are in the Mid-Western local government area (two), Dubbo Regional (one) and Orange (one).
Meanwhile, across Australia, 6654 people have caught the virus, with only seven new infections reported during the past 24 hours.
Nationwide, more than 5000 people have now recovered from COVID-19.
A Western NSW LHD spokeswoman said it was critical that communities in the region continue to practise social distancing to minimise the risk of the transmission of COVID-19.
"This is important for everyone, but particularly for older people and people with health conditions that make them more vulnerable," she said.
"It's also important that we protect our health care workers who we need to stay well to provide care to people who become sick with COVID-19."
