CHCC update regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic:
The safety and wellbeing of our employees, volunteers and customers is a priority for Coffs Harbour City Council and we are following the advice of the Australian Government, World Health Organisation (WHO) and NSW Health in the implementation of workplace measures to help minimise any possible infections. Council is taking a risk management approach to the pandemic and seeking to minimise any potential impact.
As result all Council events and public programs run in our facilities have been postponed or suspended until the situation is reviewed again on 14 April 2020.
We please ask that if you are showing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed or showing symptoms of COVID-19, that you not use a Council facility at this time.
