NO new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Tamworth or in the Hunter New England Health (HNEH) district in the latest 24-hour testing period.
Statistics from HNEH show it's the first time in more than a month the district has gone two consecutive days without recording a new case of coronavirus.
In the latest update to 8pm on Tuesday, the case count in the HNEH district remains at 276 patients.
A spokesperson from HNEH confirmed this number includes patients who have recovered from the infection and those who have died from COVID-19.
Tamworth has been stable at 12 cases for more than two weeks now.
The latest update from NSW Health shows the state recorded 16 new COVID-19 infections in the latest 24-hour testing period to 8pm on Tuesday.
Public health officials have praised the local community for following social distancing laws and slowing the spread, but warn it isn't time to become complacent.
HHEH rural and regional executive director Susan Heyman told the Leader the region is well-prepared, should there be a surge in the cooler months.
"We are well-prepared and we have only seen 12 cases in Tamworth," she said.
"I'm proud of the way the community has handled and abided by restrictions.
"Really, we thought the numbers would be much higher, but we are proud they are not."
More than half of all cases in the HNEH district have now officially recovered from COVID-19, though where these patients are from has not been made public by NSW Health.
