Wagga Wagga City Council today announced facilities and services continue to operate as normal despite some impact on staffing levels due to COVID-19.
Council is closely managing its facilities and at this stage no services have been affected in terms of their availability to the public.
Acting General Manager Michael Keys said this situation may change as COVID-19 continues to move through the community, and Council will keep the community updated.
“Like all businesses and organisations, Council is susceptible to the impacts of COVID-19,” Mr Keys said.
“Council is therefore always preparing for situations such as this and has plans in place to accommodate the needs of staff while continuing services to the community as normally as possible.
“Any changes that may impact Council services in coming weeks will be communicated to the community.
“Council acknowledges the co-operation and efforts of all staff who are able to continue in their service to the community while trying to protect themselves and their families.”
At this stage, Council’s cultural facilities and businesses remain open to the public.
This includes the City Library, Art Gallery, Civic Theatre, Museum of the Riverina, Oasis Aquatic Centre, Gregadoo Waste Management Centre, the Cemetery and the Livestock Marketing Centre.
To date scheduled community events such as the Australia Day 2022 Awards Ceremony on the evening of 25 January and the Australia Day Community Breakfast and Citizenship Ceremony on 26 January, are still going ahead.
Any postponements or cancellation of performances at the Civic Theatre will be communicated directly to ticket holders by theatre staff.
Council continues to take advice and guidance from the New South Wales Government (NSW Health).
