COVID caution as Canberra case confirmed

Eurobodalla Council is exercising caution as COVID-19 cases in the greater region continue to rise.

As of Thursday afternoon, there were no positive COVID cases in Eurobodalla however the ACT had been put into lockdown after a man in his 20s contracted the virus and visited 14 Canberra venues while infectious.

Council’s General Manager Dr Catherine Dale said Council would continue to monitor and follow NSW Government advice.

“We are holding regular staff meetings to everyone is kept abreast of the changes and we’re considering every possible scenario to allow us to prepare,” she said.

“Community safety is paramount and this Delta outbreak is serious. Please remain vigilant with your use of masks, hand hygiene and QR code check-ins and, if you have even the mildest of symptoms, please get tested.

“It is also important to keep a check on the NSW Government website every day for updated venues in case you have come in contact with the virus.”

Dr Dale urged Canberra residents who might have come into the shire prior to the Canberra lockdown to abide by the rules.

“More than 30 per cent of Eurobodalla residents are over 65 – the last thing we want is for any members of our community to be put at risk,” she said.

The majority of Council services remain open for now, however residents are strongly encouraged to do business with Council over the phone or online.

Buyback centres at the shire’s tips are closed and the Dr Mackay Community Centre at Moruya is open to clients only.

The Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service shopfront is also closed, however support is available over the phone on 4474 7434 or email recovery@esc.nsw.gov.au
