Council reopening in line with Covid roadmap

9 October 2021

Eurobodalla Council will stagger the reopening of its buildings and facilities in line with the NSW Government’s Covid roadmap, starting next week.

On Monday 11 October, doors will open to the administration building in Moruya and the Moruya depot.

Council’s tips at Brou, Moruya and Surf Beach will also reopen from Monday. Visitors should expect long queues and are asked to be patient, and to consider delaying their visit for a few days.

Narooma indoor pool opens Monday for swimming lessons, squad training, lap swimming, and rehab activities. Moruya outdoor pool opened last Monday.

The Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden will re-open on Wednesday 13 October.

In line with the Covid roadmap, it will be a condition of entry to Council buildings and facilities that people are vaccinated, wear a mask and check in using the Service NSW QR code.

Council’s planning helpdesk will reopen for face to face appointments on Monday 18. Customers should continue to get their planning advice over the phone or by email until then.

Eurobodalla Libraries click and collect service will continue for another week, with the three libraries in Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma reopening their doors on Monday 18 October.

Council’s community halls and rooms will be available to book from Monday 18 October.

All enrolled families can return to Council’s Children’s Services from Monday 18 October. This includes Family Day Care and OOSH Kids out-of-school hours care.

The Job Shop in Moruya, Youth Cafes and YDrive will also re-open on Monday 18th.

General Manager Dr Catherine Dale said the staggered opening of Council facilities ensures a balance of community safety and social wellbeing.

“We still have 22 active Covid-19 cases in the Eurobodalla, and I urge residents and visitors to respect the guidelines businesses are putting in place as they transition out of lockdown.”

“People should continue doing business with Council online and over the phone if they can. As per the roadmap, most of our indoor workforce will continue working from home. While we’ve arranged sufficient staff to be safely in the administration building to assist our customers, please call ahead if you’re expecting to see a particular staffer.”
