Changes to Council services and facilities with restrictions lifting

Recent announcements from the Premier and Chief Health Officer has led to some easing of restrictions across the state. The raising of some of the restrictions will now see changes to some of Council’s facilities and services.



Mayor, Cr Seema Abdullah said she was pleased to see how responsive and flexible Council has been in adapting to COVID-19 restrictions to ensure that essential services continued during challenging times. “With the Premier recently announcing a switch in messaging from ‘stay home’ to ‘stay safe’ we are doing everything in our power to assist our community to transition to what will be our new normality, however the health and safety of our residents remains our number one priority,” she said.

“Thank you to the diligence and commitment of our community in adhering to the stay at home and physical distancing requirements, undertaking good hygiene and looking out for each other which has led to the easing of restrictions across the state and for Greater Shepparton.”

There is an in-depth process at Council that oversees the re-opening of services, and this includes making sure re-opening is feasible with the numbers allowed in certain spaces, and making sure is it is safe including signage, cleaning and record keeping. Further modification and re-opening of Council services will only be undertaken when required measures are in place to keep the community and our staff safe and well.
