Horsham Rural City Council has appointed COVID Support Officers to help businesses, community groups and event organisers navigate restrictions, rules and regulations.
Environmental Health Coordinator Luke Mitton said the constant changes surrounding COVIDSafe practices were exhausting for business owners and community members, and often difficult to interpret.
“We are pleased to have two dedicated COVID Support Officers available full-time to assist businesses and community groups to ‘get it right’ and keep our community safe,” Mr Mitton said.
“The role is a great support to strengthen the COVIDSafe practices already in place and reinforce the terrific work our community is doing.
“Ultimately, the positions will act as a conduit between State Government, Council and those who operate under COVID restrictions,” he said.
