Mayor Tracey Roberts commended the community for observing the advice of the World Health Organization and the State and Federal Departments of Health.

“As a Council, we are following the advice of health experts when we make decisions about our services, and we are focused on ensuring we continue to deliver critical services, including kerbside bin pick-ups, throughout this crisis,” Mayor Roberts said.

“While community members follow social distancing and other health advice and with declining community demand for some City-run public services, the City is temporarily closing non-essential services.

“Without doubt the COVID-19 outbreak is having an impact on our economy, the way we interact, and our sense of wellbeing.

“We understand this is a difficult time for many in our community, including our small businesses and community groups and we are already planning for how we can support our residents, ratepayers and local businesses through the recovery phase following the outbreak. 

“We have always supported our small businesses and community groups and we will continue to do so. 

“We are a strong and resilient community that cares about our neighbours, so I encourage you to keep that community minded focus at the forefront of everything you do, but safely.

“Please continue to communicate with others, especially those who may be particularly vulnerable at this time. If not safe to visit family, friends or neighbours in person, a check in via phone, video call, email or social media can make a tremendous difference to our ability to connect with each other.

“We are in unprecedented circumstances which we are experiencing together.”
