The Northern Tablelands is teetering on the edge of being COVID-19 free, with only one active case remaining, in Armidale.
That was the message from state MP Adam Marshall who said that one remaining case was expected to move into the recovered category in coming days.
"Fingers crossed with no new cases, we will achieve that magic number of zero," Mr Marshall said.
He said it was clear from the chilly conditions today that winter and the sniffles are only just around the corner and the health advice was that no matter how mild your symptoms, people should be tested.
Mr Marshall said people could be tested for coronavirus by contacting their GP or the hospital.
In the meantime, he outlined how some aspects of life are returning to normal.
He said the Premier had made three announcements this week relating to further easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
The first is that from Monday, June 1, travel restrictions will be lifted to permit holidaying within NSW.
"NSW citizens will be able to take recreational trips across the State, as long as they maintain social distancing and good hygiene," he said.
"This means some caravan parks and camping grounds will re-open, however it will be up to the individual operator if they choose to open their doors - travellers should phone ahead to confirm any bookings.
As part of this change he said NSW would also be welcoming travellers form interstate.
The second announcement was from next Monday, students from Kindergarten to Year 12 would be returning to the classroom full-time for five days a week.
"While this has caused some concern for parents I want to reassure everyone steps have been taken to ensure students, teachers, support staff and parents are safe being back in this environment.
"Additional cleaning of facilities will be undertaken while those on school grounds will have access to hygiene supplies and be monitored to ensure they are practicing good hygiene."
The third announcement was that, pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes in NSW would be able to cater for up to 50 patrons from June 1, subject to a one person per four square metre rule and with strict social distancing guidelines.
"Despite what some in the community might say, none of these decisions has been made lightly or without advice from leading medical experts," Mr Marshall said.
"Our current rate of infection shows the way this pandemic is being managed is working and now it falls on all of us to continue adhering to social distancing measures to ensure that continues."
