BATHURST was the only council area to gain a coronavirus case overnight, with Orange's total remaining at eight.
There are now 36 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Western region as of 10am on Monday.
The Western NSW Local Health District confirmed apart from the Orange cases there were now nine cases in Bathurst, two in Cabonne, three in Blayney and six in Dubbo.
There are four in Mid-Western (Mudgee) and one each in the Weddin (Grenfell), Narromine, Warren and Warrumbungle Shire areas.
The Western NSW Local Health District covers about one third of the state.
NSW Health instructs anyone who has travelled overseas during the past 14 days to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms.
Social distancing, which is currently in place, means separating yourself from other people as much as possible when you're in public places, and avoiding crowded places. Practically, you should:
- Keep a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and others
- Don't shaking hands, hug or kissing other people
- Avoid visiting vulnerable people, such as those in aged care facilities or hospitals, infants, or people with compromised immune systems due to illness or medical treatment.
