Business COVID-19 safety plans will help manage the risks associated with increased public activities and travel, according to a Border health spokeswoman.
Murrumbidgee Local Health District director of public health Tracey Oakman said while concerns about a second wave or clusters of coronavirus infections remained, "the reality is we have to get on with our lives".
"We have to get our businesses up and running again and so what we need to do is look how we can do that in the safest way possible," she said on Monday.
The health service confirmed no new cases, with the number of identified COVID-19 positive patients in region remaining at 45 out of 8806 people tested.
There are 43 recovered cases and no hospitalisations at the moment.

Mrs Oakman said businesses reopening as restrictions eased needed to have a COVID-19 safety plan.
"And that plan is basically a checklist of the things that the businesses are required to do to maintain a safe environment for the public," she said.
Examples of the extra measures might be no shared cutlery, correctly wiping down tables between patrons and monitoring the health of staff.
Community members also needed to remember social distancing, keeping at least 1.5 metres between themselves and other people.
Mrs Oakman encouraged people to look after their general health outside of coronavirus and visit their GP as usual for any underlying conditions.
"We don't want people compounding their normal health issues and getting worse and needing to be admitted to hospital for something that can be preventable," she said.
