There was no new case of COVID-19 in Orange announced on Sunday, the day before the state came out of lockdown.
Across the Western NSW Local Health District there were 17 new cases up to 8pm on Saturday.
These were in Walgett (5), with two infectious in the community, Wellington (5) with four infectious in the community, Bourke (3) with none infectious in the community, Cowra (3) with one infectious in the community and Dubbo (1) which was also infectious in the community.
Nine were not infectious in the community and zero remain under investigation.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard said it was vital that NSW residents continued to roll up their sleeves to push the state's rates of double vaccination even higher as lockdown restrictions eased on Monday.
"The community has done a fantastic job to reach the 70 per cent double dose target, but we must keep going. We want to get to as close to 100 per cent double vaccination as possible to keep everyone safe," Mr Hazzard said.
"Vaccination is our greatest weapon against the virus, together with social distancing, hand sanitising, mask wearing and getting tested when we have symptoms - which all remain important as we navigate our way out of this pandemic."
People were encouraged to have their vaccination status ready, either through the Express Plus Medicare app, the digital wallet on their phone or a paper certificate from Services Australia.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said Monday was the first step in seeing some restrictions lift for those who are double-vaccinated.
"There is a sense of optimism out there with thousands of businesses across the state busy preparing to open their doors tomorrow. NSW you've earned this." Mr Perrottet said.
"As we re-open after more than 100 days we ask everyone to treat staff with kindness and respect when they ask you to check-in or see your vaccination certificate.
"Following these simple measures will help keep us all safe and keep us moving forward out of the pandemic."
