Community Update: 16 July 2020

Published: Thursday 16 Jul 2020

Council is following the Directions issued by the Chief Health Officer under the Victorian State of Emergency. The health and wellbeing of our community is our highest priority.

The “Stage 3 - Stay at Home” restrictions have been reintroduced and came into effect from 11:59pm on Wednesday 8 July. A full list of facility closures and up to date information can be found on our service closures page on our website. 

We encourage all residents of Whitehorse City Council to comply with the Stay at Home Directions. We should stay at home except for one of these four reasons listed:

  • Shopping for essentials
  • Provide or receive care
  • Work or study if it cannot be done from home
  • Exercise 

We must all maintain physical distance, stay at home if unwell, get tested if we have any symptoms and wash our hands. 

If you need extra support during this time, we have a list of agencies and contact details providing relief, mental health and family supports and more. 

Council will communicate with the community, our clients and our stakeholders regularly.
