You will have likely seen the announcement yesterday (16 November) from South Australian Premier Steven Marshall providing an update on the COVID-19 directions for the community. A new COVID-19 cluster has emerged in our State and the situation is rapidly evolving.
I want to reassure you that the Council is continuing to manage the situation through the Local Government Association SA, SA Health and the Eastern Health Authority.
From Tuesday 17 November, new social distancing and density restrictions are in place that will impact the services that Council provides to the community.
It will be business as usual for the majority of Council’s services however as the health and safety of our community and staff is our priority, the following services will alter for a two-week period from 17 November to 1 December:
- All recreation facilities will temporarily close. The George Bolton Swimming Centre will remain open for lap and rehabilitation swimming; and closed for recreational swimming.
- The Burnside Library, Regal Theatre and Pepper Street Arts Centre will remain open with strict social distancing and a density requirements of 1 person per 4m².
- All Council-run social programs and community activities will cease.
- All Volunteer programs will cease, including the Justice of the Peace service.
To help with social distancing and good hygiene, signage, hand hygiene facilities, keeping interaction to a minimum through screens and employment of physical barriers and buffer zones will remain in place.
Please do not attend community centres if you are unwell. Council encourages queries to be done over the phone on 8366 4200 or via email on [email protected]
