As our valued community and stakeholders we’d like to update you on the measured precautions Council is taking to ensure we keep our staff and our community
safe, closely following any advice provided by the Federal and State health authorities.
Council has set up an internal Planning Team that is proactively coordinating Council’s approach to the risk. Business Continuity Plans are being reviewed
and updated as required and a measured and precautionary approach is being taken to working with staff who have recently travelled overseas or are
in contact with those who have.
One of the key recommendations from health officials is that people maintain good hygiene practices, with 20-30 seconds of warm soapy hand washing regularly,
self-isolating when unwell and if concerned, seeking medical advice.
We continue to roll out a series of posters and stickers in public places to provide support and advice on hand washing as well as directions to relevant
government websites for more information.
The Australia Government Department of Health and NSW Health provide daily updates on their
websites. You can also learn more about protective measures against coronavirus from the World Health Organization and read the ‘What you need to know’ and ‘Isolation guidance’ information sheets.
Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade is also updating the Smartraveller website every day.
We will continue to follow advice of authorities and will provide further information as needed.
