Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has advised sporting organisations to seek out the "one source of truth" before making rash decisions and cancelling competitions.
Mr Marshall's warning comes after Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant sent a letter to community sports organisations, on August 14, outlining a series of recommendations for the next six weeks to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
The recommendations included sporting organisations cease activities that result in mixing of people from different regions such as in championship events, overnight stays, social activities relating to community sports, carpools as well as limiting spectators.
The letter did not, however, include a recommendation to completely cancel local competitions.
"When it comes to COVID-19 restrictions, there is one source of truth and one source of truth only," Mr Marshall said.
"They are called Public Health Orders issued under the Public Health Act.
"If it is not in the Public Health Orders, ignore it.
"I don't care if the Chief Health Officer or the Prime Minister is writing an email with a recommendation, if it is not in the Public Health Order, it doesn't count. It means nothing."
Mr Marshall said it is the same Public Health Order which the National Rugby League competition operates within and emphasised the fact there has been no change to the current one.
He has also vowed to stick up for sports within the region.
"I am sick to death of these bloody wet blanket, public servants from Sydney trying to tell us how to live our lives in the bush when we have got no cases and everyone is being very careful in how they conduct themselves to make sure we are Covid safe," he said.
"If they try and take that away from us, I will be the first one to take up the cudgels and lead the bloody protest to change any stupid decision that is made because it would be insanity if they tried to do that."
There are no active cases of coronavirus in the New England and North West regions.
All sporting organisations were required to implement COVID-19 safety plans prior to the commencement of competitions on July 18.
"If there were heaps of cases in Tamworth or Armidale or Walcha or Coffs Harbour I could understand these concerns being made, and we should review the competition, but that is not the situation we are in," Mr Marshall said.
"We have worked so hard to get sport back.
"When we got sport back we had more cases in the state than we have got now so why would we get rid of it?"
