Younger adults have been encouraged to seek coronavirus testing if symptomatic, with nearly 40 per cent of Murrumbidgee cases aged 20 to 29 years.
Murrumbidgee Local Health District director public health Tracey Oakman said about 150 COVID-19 tests were conducted by the mobile clinic at Lockhart, Henty, Narrandera and Coolamon last week.
"It shows a real commitment to public health interventions and public health concern and those people should be thanked for doing that," she said on Monday.
The mobile clinic will visit Tumbarumba on Monday, May 11, (1pm to 3.30pm) and Holbrook between 9am and 11.30am on Wednesday, May 13.
Murrumbidgee, a NSW health district that includes Albury, has tested 5833 people for the virus and no new positive results have been detected.
Albury Wodonga Health also tested 265 people at a one-day pop-up testing clinic at Wodonga's Mann Central shopping centre on Friday as part of a Victorian testing blitz.
The Albury Wodonga Health drive-thru clinic has conducted 3247 screening calls to date and tested 2144 patients. The service has no active COVID-19 cases and no positive results returned to clinic testing in the past 24 hours to Monday morning.

Mrs Oakman said people aged 20 to 30 shouldn't think they didn't need to be tested.
"You might be young but you're not invincible, so please have some consideration that if you do have any symptoms, go and get tested," she said.
"The 20 to 30 year-olds; we encourage everyone but that's an age group that really hasn't, I guess, been as active in getting tested as other age groups."
Seventeen of Murrumbidgee's 45 coronavirus cases have been aged 20 to 29 years.
Mrs Oakman said with restrictions to be eased, maintaining social distance remained important as activities increased.
"We don't really want to stop that, what we do want to make sure is those people out and about do keep their distance from each other," she said.
IN OTHER NEWS:
"If we go out and about and act responsibly and keep our distances, then we're going to reduce the transmission and therefore we won't be at risk potentially of having those freedoms pulled back again, which we don't want."
