NSW Health has advised that anyone who has been in Greater Sydney, Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong or Shellharbour in the last 14 days must wear a mask.

In response to this Public Health Order, Council is requesting that all visitors to our indoor facilities aged 12 years and over, wear a mask.

If you need a mask, Council staff will have them available for you on site.

Council has COVID safety plans in place for its facilities, including public venues and holiday parks. Council would like to remind visitors to observe NSW health guidelines on social distancing, self-isolation and testing procedures, handwashing and personal hygiene practices.
