It feels like Sunday. Everyday!
This week the streets have been a lot quieter around Armidale.
With the stay at home health order in place after three cases of COVID-19 were confirmed last weekend, the community has shown Sydney how it's done and followed the rules.
While people can still shop for food and essential supplies each day, the supermarkets are less busier than usual and the CBD is eerily quiet.
On Wednesday, the Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced Armidale had recorded its third day of zero COVID-19 cases as the community continues to front up for testing.
Tamworth also recorded no further cases.
Members of the community are still being encouraged by local pharmacies and health officials to get the jab, as Armidale announces a 'Super Saturday' COVID-19 mass vaccination hub would open at the University of New England Medical Centre.
Doctors and nurses will administer the AstraZeneca vaccine to any member of the community over the age of 18 who presents and no bookings are needed.
The walk-in hub will be open between 10am and 3pm on Saturday, August 14 at the UNE medical centre on Butler Street. COVID marshals will be present on the day to ensure safety standards are met.
Meanwhile, at local pharmacies, hundreds of doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine arrived in Armidale on Tuesday.
With most of the city at home, a Sydney-based expert has warned apartment dwellers to be extra vigilant in common areas and not touch surfaces claiming there is current confusion about strata cleaning issues.
Mayor Ian Tiley has praised the way the community has responded during the lockdown.
Armidale's lockdown is due to end at 12.01am on Sunday morning.
