Four new COVID-19 cases have been diagnosed in Wagga Wagga.

"They have returned from Victoria and they have isolated since," Mr Burns said.

He said health officials are confident the virus has not been passed on to anyone outside the family.

"They have had as needed groceries delivered online and they've done the right thing," he added.

The family are believed to have been to Melbourne, and had a travel permit to cross the border back into NSW," he said.

Health officials said the child's grandmother has "very mild" coronavirus symptoms. The other family members are asymptomatic.
