Harmony Day celebrations cancelled

The Devonport City Council has cancelled its Harmony Day celebrations planned for Friday in Market Square.

Mayor Annette Rockliff said the cancellation was unfortunate but, in light of the latest advice from the Prime Minister and health officials regarding hosting public gatherings of more than 500 attendees given the coronavirus, Council believe there was no other prudent step it could take.

Council is currently contacting all stakeholders to advise them of the decision.

It is also assessing all events it is responsible for to determine their future given the latest advice regarding the virus.
