Each of us has a role to play to reduce the risk of COVID-19 entering our community. You play an important part and at Council, we are also doing all we can to prevent the spread.
Here’s some of the things we are doing:
At Council, we are not virus experts so we take advice from NSW Health and ensure we implement any directions from the NSW Health Orders.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have increased our cleaning regimes in public places and our facilities to help prevent the spread.
In enclosed customer-facing areas such as our libraries, Customer Service Centres and visitor information centres we have added screens and many of our staff are now also wearing masks.
As a condition of entry to our facilities, visitors are being asked to provide names and phone numbers to ensure we can contact you should a case be identified at that location.
All public bathrooms now have soap dispensers which are regularly refilled. And we are asking visitors to use the hand sanitiser provided in our public facilities like libraries, community centres and customer information centres.
We have installed signage at hundreds of locations across the area to remind people to keep up measures to reduce the risk and added decals to the floor to stress 1.5m social distancing. We are also helping local businesses by providing signage for their outlets.
Reducing risk is everyone’s responsibility. If we all do our bit we can keep the virus at bay and avoid the need for further restrictions.
