The MLHD Mobile Testing Clinic will be deployed to Cootamundra Showgrounds until 4pm today.
The most common symptoms include fever and dry cough and some people also experience sore throat, shortness of breath, or runny or stuffy nose.
Anyone with even the mildest of symptoms is urged to get tested.
The news comes after an aged care facility in Cootamundra was forced to enact emergency measures last week after a woman from the Greater Sydney region visited their facility over the weekend.
When the breach was first discovered, all staff who had escorted the woman through the building were sent home to get a COVID test and self-isolate. Visitors who were present at the time were also directed to get a test.
Everyone has since returned a negative test result, including the woman from Greater Sydney.
