Northern Beaches Council has taken strong measures to protect the health of the community following the advice of NSW Health in response to a number of active COVID cases on the Northern Beaches.
Mayor Michael Regan said NSW Health had released a request for all Northern Beaches residents to stay home for the next three days in an effort to prevent any further spread.
“It’s really tough but we’ve gotten through this before and we will again,” Mayor Regan said.
“The temporary closures we are announcing for the next three days are in the interest of everyone’s health and safety and really important while the contact tracers continue to do their work and NSW Health get more of a sense on where we stand.
“It is as important as ever that our community follow the health advice – stay home, stay within family groups, wash hands and if any symptoms appear please get tested.
“The community should be assured we will maintain all essential services like waste collection, childcare, Meals on Wheels, road maintenance as well as customer service online and on the phone.”
Facilities and services which will be temporarily closed, Friday 18 Dec to Sun 20 Dec:
Council and Surf Life Saving NSW have also lowered the red and yellow flags at the 21 beaches from North Palm Beach through to Manly and are maintaining a surveillance capability only in case of emergencies until Monday.
"These are very challenging times. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding as we manage these difficult circumstances in the interests of the health of our community,” Mayor Regan said.
