JUST one person remains sick with coronavirus in the Western NSW Local Health District, health authorities confirmed on Wednesday morning.
The person lives in the Orange local government area and is receiving medical care, but is not in hospital.
Of the 45 people who were diagnosed with COVID-19 in the region, 43 have now made a recovery, while one person died from the virus earlier this month.
Bathurst has had a total of nine cases, all of them recovered.
Across the region, 12 local government areas have had at least one case of the virus, while a number have had none at all, including Cowra, Forbes and Oberon.
A Central West woman who caught COVID-19 while on the Ruby Princess cruise said she feared for her life while sick.
Meanwhile, across Australia, more than 6738 cases have been recorded, but around 1100 are active.
Of the active cases, 109 are in hospital, with 42 in intensive care.
Earlier this week, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced an easing to COVID-19 restrictions that will allow two visitors to travel anywhere in the state to visit family and friends at their home.
