Council Services Update in Northern Areas

Northern Areas Council is mindful of community concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID 19) and the impact it is having on our local community.

We find ourselves in an unprecedented environment and would like to assure that the wellbeing of the community is our first priority and that we will continue to monitor and adapt to the rapidly developing and changing situation around the Coronavirus (COVID 19).

Because of the rapidly changing situation we are focussing our primary communication through our website and Facebook page. We will continue to use radio, television to communicate information however using our website and Facebook is a quicker way to get information out.

Please share our website and Facebook information with your family and friends.

With the current advice from the Federal Department of Health and legal advice, Council have decided to close the Hydro Pool and Gymnasium in Jamestown as of 5pm Friday 20 March 2020 till further notice.

We are monitoring information from the Department of Health on a daily basis and may decide to take action such as amending the operations of the Flinders Mobile Library Services and limiting some Council services if the spread continues and/or as directed by State and Federal Governments.

The most up to date and trusted information and alerts regarding the Coronavirus should be sourced directly from the lead agencies dealing with the Coronavirus –
