Like other cities and towns around the world, our community has felt the ripple effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

We want to reassure people that Council is doing all it can to protect the wellbeing of our customers, our community and our staff.

We continue to closely monitor the latest advice from health authorities and act accordingly.

We encourage you to stay up-to-date with the latest information and advice from:

Getting vaccinated/boosted

Staying up to date
You must have all recommended doses to be considered up to date with the COVID-19 vaccination. Please find out more information here.

Booking an appointment
The COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder is the best way to book a vaccination. Find a clinic near you that suits your needs by answering some simple questions. You can use it to check your eligibility and book for yourself, your children, or someone else. Booster vaccines are strongly encouraged to maintain immunity against COVID-19. You can book a booster dose if it has been 3 months or longer since your second dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Find out more here.

A Fourth dose is recommended for people at increased risk of severe illness, to be given 3 months after their first booster dose. (This additional booster will be a fifth dose for people who are severely immunocompromised, have an underlying medical condition or disability). Please find more information on Fourth doses and who is advised to get one, here.

How to get proof of your vaccination

Information on how to access your vaccination certificate is available on the NSW Government website.

Information for people exposed to COVID-19

As the number of people with COVID-19 increases, NSW Health is focusing on contacting people at highest risk of catching/contracting COVID-19.

You may not receive a text message or call from NSW Health after being exposed to a person with COVID-19.

NSW Health are asking people with COVID-19 to tell the people they have spent time with from the 2 days before they started having symptoms or tested positive (whichever came first) that they have COVID-19.

If you are told by someone that you have been in contact with a person who has COVID-19, advice is available on the NSW Health website to understand your risk and what you can do to protect yourself, your family and your community. It also outlines how long you are at risk for and what you should do.

Please find the NSW Health information on household and close contact guidelines here. 

How to report a positive rapid antigen test result

You must register a positive rapid antigen test result as soon as possible after you get your result. 

You can register a positive test result for yourself, another adult or a child. Each result needs to be reported separately, using the Service NSW app or website. You must register your result with Service NSW if you test positive in another state or territory and have returned to NSW to self-isolate. 

You do not need to register if you've:

  • had a negative or invalid rapid antigen test result
  • had a positive PCR test in the 28 days before your positive rapid antigen test
  • already reported a positive rapid antigen test in the last 28 days on the Service NSW mobile app or website.

Find more information on what you need and how to register here.

More information:

  • From 19 January 2022, a penalty of $1,000 will apply if you fail to register a positive rapid antigen test result.
  • If you have any health concerns, you can check your symptoms online or contact your GP, the NSW Health Flu and COVID-19 Care at Home Support Line on 1800 960 933, or Healthdirect 24/7 on 1800 022 222.
  • After being exposed to someone with COVID-19 you are at risk of getting it for up to 14 days.
  • The information you provide will be shared with NSW Health. Find out how your personal information will be managed.
