Gunnedah Shire Council has enacted a Coronavirus Response Strategy detailing our response to this threat to the health and economy of our Shire. This strategy is reviewed daily by Council’s Continuity Management Team to ensure it is in line with State and Federal Government Coronavirus measures, and prescribes the best possible way forward for Gunnedah Shire. Our priorities remain the health and safety of Gunnedah Shire residents and our staff, and the continued delivery of essential services.
Currently, Gunnedah Shire is in the orange stage of our yellow-orange-red response strategy. We have temporarily closed face-to-face communications, are ensuring working conditions allowing social distancing, and are constantly reviewing our staffing needs and the community’s needs to look at where staff can best be deployed. We are also absolutely committed to keeping our community and businesses informed and to listening to their concerns.
The following list shows the current operational status of Gunnedah Shire Council services and facilities. The status of these services has been decided following consideration of public health orders issued by the NSW Government, direction from the Office of Local Government and Gunnedah Shire Council’s own Coronavirus Response Strategy. We will continue to monitor updates from the NSW Government and provide status updates when public health orders allow for reopening of other services.
