Restrictions update

From 11.59pm, Friday, February 17, 2021 restrictions across Victoria will revert to the COVIDSafe summer setting.

There’ll no longer be four reasons to leave home. The five-kilometre restriction will no longer apply.

Restaurants and retail can reopen. Same too with community facilities, entertainment venues and all other public places – although some additional limits on crowd sizes will be in place.

Students will be able to head back to school. Workers will be able to get back to work.

For offices – both public and private – that means a return to 50 per cent on site.

Masks are required everywhere indoors and outside where you cannot physically distance.

Your safety is our priority.

Wodonga Council wants to assure its community that it is business as usual at this time for many of its operations during the onset of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. 

The safety of our community and our staff are always our top priority. 

In line with the precautionary measures being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the council made the decision to not hold any events or venue programs for the remainder of the calendar year. 

The council encourages our community to continue following the advice of DHHS on hygiene and safety practices and to remain informed on the latest details at dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

This is an anxious and uncertain time for everyone, and support is vital and available. For more information about managing stress and support options, call the Coronavirus Mental Wellbeing Support Services on 1800 512 348 or visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au. 

The situation is changing rapidly and the council will continue to monitor government advice and act promptly as things change.

We all play a role in working to contain and slow the spread of COVID-19 across our community. 

Please monitor this page and our channels to stay updated on any changes to operations. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding and we encourage you, at this difficult time, to make sure #KindnessIsCatching.
