Our response to COVID-19

The safety of our community, customers and our people is our top priority.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on the lives of all Australians. We recognise the fundamental importance of the services we provide, and are doing everything we can to continue delivering our core services, without interruption, to our community during this time.

Our people are monitoring advice on all public health matters from the state and federal health departments daily and assessing any potential impact on our city services and events.

We understand our community's concern given the potential seriousness of the situation, and ask you to be fully informed and listen to evidence-based, real-time advice of health professionals and government officials.
