Murrumbidgee Local Health District is no longer last on the list of people who have been tested for coronavirus across health districts.
Eight of the district's 45 positive cases have come from Albury, but there have been no new cases since April.
MLHD medical services director Len Bruce said it was not a competition, but it was nice to be up with the "big boys", with a total of 9314 people tested.
He credited the mobile testing vans with helping to increase the numbers.
"There's been tremendous community engagement, a lot of work done," he said.
"We've had no new cases now for approximately six weeks, which is great news."

But Dr Bruce did not believe coronavirus was gone from the region for good.
"We probably will see more cases, but we can minimise it," he said.
"Especially now with restrictions being relaxed, those other factors like hand hygiene, cough etiquette and maintain social distancing if you can is even more important."
The sad case of a 30-year-old Queensland man, who died this week after not getting tested for his symptoms, was used as a reason why everyone who is unwell should get a test.
"If you're in any way unwell with the mildest of symptoms, get tested because then we can make sure we look after you and you don't deteriorate," Dr Bruce said.
