Moorabool Shire Council’s Derek Madden said Council was committed to minimising the risk of COVID-19 on our community, especially to elderly and vulnerable residents.

“The measures we are putting in place we believe are essential to slowing the spread of the virus,” Mr Madden said.

“We appreciate the public’s understanding regarding this and refer anyone with concerns around COVID-19 to the Health and Human Services departmental website: which provides up to date and accurate information.”
