Updated: Nov 11, 2020
For the third day in a row, there are no new coronavirus cases in the Tamworth Regional area, but Uralla Shire has recorded its first case.
As of 8pm on April 1, there were 12 cases of COVID-19 in the Tamworth LGA.
Gunnedah has still remained coronavirus free, but Uralla, Armidale, Inverell, Glen Innes and Tenterfield all have between one to four cases each.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said the case in the Uralla Shire is a younger person who had returned from overseas and has been self-isolating at home since returning.
"NSW Police have been in contact with this person and all the isolation requirements are being met,"' he said on social media.
"Now more than ever, as the virus makes its way into our shires, towns and villages, we must remain vigilant, follow the rules and do our part to keep ourselves and those around us safe from this disease.
"It is critical that everyone in all our local communities continues to practice social distancing to minimise the risk of the transmission of COVID-19."
Everyone can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by practising social distancing, thorough hand washing, cough etiquette and staying home unless it's essential.
