About 14 per cent of Indigo Shire's working population have been unable to do their job in NSW since the new border restrictions came into play.
Helen Haines said after bushfires the region could not afford to lose any more jobs.
She said Border residents were wearing the cost of Melbourne and Mitchell shire's second wave.
"The NSW Government's border restrictions are putting an economic and social cost on our regional communities that will be deep, painful and felt for years," she said.
"There is no public health justification for this hardship."

Dr Haines said it was 'unfair and illogical' that people on the Border were not able to go to work but people in Melbourne still could.
"The fact remains - many people in our border communities, where there is no incidence of COVID-19 community transmission, are unable to go to work and transact business because of the NSW Government's border restrictions," she said.
"But if you live in Melbourne and Sydney you can go still go to work."
