There were no new COVID-19 cases recorded in Lithgow up to 8pm Thursday night, October 14.
This comes after three new cases were recorded on Wednesday, but those cases are said to be household contacts of other related members who have COVID-19.
There are currently 17 active cases in the Lithgow area and 16 people have recovered.
Current figures place the Lithgow local government area at 88% first dose vaccination and 72.5% second dose vaccination.
This is promising, but Lithgow Council has noted the rate is slowing and is urging residents to book their first or second doses as soon as they can.
There have been 14 new cases of COVID-19 identified in WNSWLHD, located in Dubbo (4), Bourke (3), Oberon (3), Walgett (2), Wellington (1) and Orange (1).
