Coronavirus has had a significant impact on our community. We recognise the risk to the community at this time and the need to provide opportunities for community members to maintain social connections. Organisations who are applying to deliver programs that provide important social connection opportunities must use methods that will deliver programs through online or other approaches that maintain social distancing. Digital methods of delivery are highly encouraged.

Please note, any correspondence submitted to Council on this matter may be open to public inspection without notifying the correspondents.
