Council events impacted
With growing concerns regarding COVID-19 and recommendations from the Federal and State Government regarding gatherings and social distancing, a number of events and programs have been affected.
With the safety of our residents remaining paramount in any decisions regarding events, Council has made the decision to postpone, cancel or suspend any gatherings that could be conducive to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, until further notice.
Council will continue ‘business as usual’ and is working on continuity plans to minimise the impact to the region and ensure essential services are maintained over coming months. Council, through the LDMG, continues to liaise with relevant authorities and will advise on any changes as they occur.
Council urges all residents to join us with ‘flattening the curve’ by ensuring hygiene practices are in place and minimising contact where possible. Council apologises for any inconvenience caused during this time.
