BATHURST has gone 24 hours with no new COVID-19 cases but the news has not been as good for Orange.
The Orange LGA recorded seven new cases in the 24-hour period to 8pm on Monday, all linked to the two Orange cases recorded earlier this week.
There have been nine new cases since October 23 and all of them are linked.
The seven cases in Orange are the only cases identified across the Western NSW Local Health District in the latest reporting period.
ALSO MAKING NEWS:
The state recorded 284 fresh case in the 24 hours to 8pm on Monday, including two international arrivals.
NSW Health data shows 93.1 per cent of people aged 16 or older have had one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, with 85 per cent of that cohort double dosed.
There were 71,352 tests conducted in that period.
The numbers are encouraging given NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant said she would be particularly interested in this week's tally, two weeks since restrictions eased significantly.
