Tweed Shire Council taking steps to keep community and staff safe
Mayor of Tweed Katie Milne said Council was closely following advice from federal and state health authorities.
"To ensure that Council is prepared and able to respond quickly to the progress of the virus within the workplace and the local community, we have established a planning group with members from across the organisation, which first met on Monday," Councillor Milne said.
"Apart from measures to keep our staff safe, we have taken a number of steps to assist safety in the community."
- Posters in public spaces to provide support and advice on hand washing as well as directions to relevant government websites for more information.
- Additional soap in some high-traffic public toilet blocks.
