COVID-19

In NSW, local councils are not medical authorities, so it is important to get information about COVID-19 from the NSW Government (including NSW Health, the Southern NSW Local Health District, and the NSW Premier).

  • Decisions relating to business and border restrictions will be made by the NSW and Australian governments.
  • Links to relevant websites are available on this page, along with information about Council services.
  • Eurobodalla Council is following the NSW Premier's advice about COVID-19 safety, with the aim of maintaining a balance of community safety and social wellbeing.

Information about Council services

Essential services such as household bin collection, water, sewer, and most administrative services are operating as usual.

Most of Council's customer service buildings are all open, with masks required in indoor areas.

From Friday 25 February 2022, wearing masks to visit Council facilities is not mandated, but still encouraged for indoor settings where you cannot maintain a safe distance to protect vulnerable people who must access Council premises and services.

For now, Council meetings are being held on video chat software and webcast online.

The safety and wellbeing of our community and staff is always Council’s number one priority.

Most Council customer service areas and public facilities are open. Essential services continue to operate, and you can carry out your business with us online or over the phone.

  • Staff members who can work remotely or from home are being supported to do so.
  • Staff who cannot work from home must follow COVID safety plans relevant to their worksite, including split-team arrangements to minimise person-to-person contact.
  • We have increased disinfectant cleaning at our main offices and facilities.
  • Public toilet cleaning schedules continue unchanged. We don’t supply soap dispensers in public toilets because of the cost of frequent vandalism. Please use your personal hand sanitiser.
  • NSW Sewage Surveillance Program: 52 sewage treatment plants in NSW, including Batemans Bay, provide samples to NSW Health to test for COVID-19. Testing can provide early warning of an increase in infections.
