Not the time to let our guard down
3rd July 2020
The Covid situation in Victoria is not getting better and reflects how easily we could be facing the same problem here if we let our guard down. We only need to look at some of the local shopping centres to see that many people have become a bit too relaxed about social distancing.
Please continue to stay safe, social distance, think about what you're doing, wash hands regularly and be particularly mindful if you're around elderly or vulnerable people.
Meanwhile, changes to the NSW Public Health Order mean it's now illegal for people to travel from the Covid hotspots in Victoria to NSW and our region, unless for work or essential travel. Six-month jail terms and/or fines of up to $11,000 apply. People travelling through those areas and not leaving a vehicle are exempt.
