Introduction

Protecting the health and safety of our community remains Council’s top priority. We are closely monitoring all health updates and are responding to important Federal and State Government directives to reduce social contact to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

We urge community members to continue to:

  • Please practice social distancing and reduce the physical contact with others;
  • ensure you clean your hands regularly and thoroughly;
  • and stay at home if you are feeling sick.

We are seeing an unprecedented disruption due to the global pandemic, a disruption that is being substantially felt in our local communities.

As a Council we are committed to assist where we can, and we have put together a comprehensive overview of available resources and links to help you through this during this difficult and confusing time.
