The western NSW town of Cowra will go back into lockdown from today as the town records its first ever case of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.

A nine-year-old boy has contracted the virus and health authorities are concerned over a number of community exposures.
Anyone who was in the town from September 13 must also adhere to the stay-at-home requirements.
Case numbers in the region remain steady, with another ten in the Western NSW Local Health district today.
Of those another six people tested positive in Dubbo and three in Walgett.
