Eurobodalla Council advise: These surfers have the right idea. In Eurobodalla, we have no intention of closing beaches or parks, but to make sure that doesn’t need to happen, every one of us needs to take responsibility for stopping the spread. Even this Easter weekend, remember, you must stay at home unless you’re going to:
· work or school, where you can’t do that remotely
· shop for food and essentials
· get medical care or supplies
· exercise (two person limit 1.5 metres apart, unless from the same household)
Our indoor and outdoor recreation facilities have been closed since public health orders were introduced on 30 March, and today with heavy hearts we taped off more of our picnic and bbq shelters around the shire.
Tennis courts are closed for casual hire, but if you notice someone having a hit, that’s because approved coaches are allowed to continue one-on-one lessons to maintain their livelihood.
And when it comes to caravan parks and campgrounds, the people you see in them are approved to be there, mainly because they’re long term tenants or have nowhere else to go.
Our region's mayors, members of parliament and health chiefs could not have done more to tell visitors to stay home, but if you're convinced someone is ignoring the advice, contact CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
NSW Police will be out and about this weekend and an on-the-spot fine will be yours if you’re doing the wrong thing. Here’s what you can and can’t do https://preview.nsw.gov.au/covid-19
Eurobodalla’s confirmed COVID-19 cases stayed at 10 this week. There are 53 confirmed cases in Southern NSW Local Health District and none of these folks have required hospitalisation – all are at home in self-isolation. No new cases have been reported in the last few days. Let’s keep doing the right thing and stay vigilant. We don’t want to see a spike in these numbers.
Council services will close for Easter, reopening Wednesday 15 April (we have our union picnic day on Easter Tuesday). Household rubbish collection won’t stop. Our website has all the information you need about COVID-19 and how we’re doing things differently to help stop the spread www.esc.nsw.gov.au/coronavirus
