The global impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is being felt across the community, business, health organisations and government.
Council plays a key role in supporting our community during emergencies affecting the Shire, and this COVID-19 pandemic is no different. Our focus for the foreseeable future is to ensure that we have the best chance of avoiding the severe impacts of COVID-19 and that we continue to support the community by providing essential services.
This page has information to help you navigate through these challenging times.
If you need to talk to someone, you can call the COVID Hotline on 1800 675 398 (press option 3) 24/7. They can connect you with local support services in our area.
Getting vaccinated helps protect our community against COVID-19. The more people who are vaccinated, the greater the protection for those vaccinated and the whole community. The vaccines being used in Australia are very effective at preventing serious illness and loss of life from COVID-19.
