There have been no new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the Northern Tablelands over the past week, and it leaves just three cases in the region who haven't recovered.
Those current cases include two in Armidale and one in Inverell.
Six people who had the virus - in Armidale, Inverell, Uralla and Emmaville - have been given the all clear.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall released the figures in an update to the community.
"These figures are pleasing because, despite a considerable testing blitz which is underway at Armidale Hospital, there have been no new cases of infection identified," Mr Marshall said.
"The convenient drive-through testing clinic which has been operating at Armidale Hospital since Monday has been a huge success in terms of increasing the level of screening locally, with now almost 300 people tested since Monday."
In response to the high level of demand, Hunter New England Health (HNEH) has extended the drive through testing service for another week.
The testing clinic opened in Armidale on Monday as Hunter New England Health (HNEH) launched a week-long blitz.
The testing rate for COVID-19 locally had been nine people per 1000 head of population, compared to the greater Newcastle area which was at 20 people per 1000 population.
The eligibility criteria for testing has been significantly eased, allowing anyone who has flu or cold like symptoms including a fever, sore throat, cough or shortness of breath to be tested.
The Armidale clinic is open from 10am to 2pm until Friday, May 1. HNEH have asked people to call 0427 923 080 between 9am and 4.30pm on testing days, to register before attending.
The drive-through clinics are expected to be available for a limited time period, but could be extended depending on demand.
Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate at home.
