Council facilities close as residents observe NSW Health order


Lake Macquarie residents are being encouraged to stay at home and follow health restrictions currently enforced from 5pm today (5 August) until 12.01am on Friday 13 August.


 

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser encouraged residents and workers to do the right thing by following health directions and limiting their movements to essential purposes only.


“People may leave their homes for essential reasons outlined in the Public Health Orders, which include for work or study that cannot be undertaken at home, to exercise outdoors, shopping for essential items and for care and compassionate reasons,” Cr Fraser said.


Residents may still attend COVID testing and vaccination sites and are encouraged to do so.


“Our shared pathways, foreshore areas, sports fields, beaches, skate parks and playgrounds remain open and available for people to access for exercise purposes only, while continuing to practice social distancing and hygiene rules.


“I encourage our Lake Macquarie community to look after each other and check in on neighbours and friends in a COVID-safe manner to help us all get through this together,” Cr Fraser said.


“Council crews will be working to keep our parks and reserves maintained and available for residents’ daily exercise; continue collecting waste and serving customers online and over the phone, and deliver as many other key services as we possibly can. I appreciate the community’s patience and understanding during this challenging time for our Council staff.”



Cr Fraser said Council had closed many of its venues and cancelled or postponed upcoming events, including Living Smart Festival, Feast for the Senses and History Illuminated.
