As we, all respond to the challenges of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the health and safety of our community and staff is Tasman Council’s number one priority. We have initiated precautionary measures in response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).
While the risk of contracting the COVID-19 is currently very low in Tasmania, we want to do everything we can to act responsibly and help slow the spread. This will allow our local health services to keep up with demand and help protect those most at risk.
In the interest of public safety, we are making some changes in the way we deliver services in accordance with advice from the Department of Health. Effective from Monday 23 March 2020 the Tasman Council Office and Depot Work Site will be closed to the public until further notice to support COVID-19 containment measures.
Council will continue to operate. We seek the community’s support in considering the way it interacts with Council. Many transactions and public requests can be dealt with via phone or email.
We ask that you contact Council on (03) 6250 9200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if possible rather than visiting us in person. We anticipate service delivery to our community may be affected and likely to be ongoing until the pandemic subsides.
COUNCIL FACILITIES AND EVENTS:
Tasman Council’s Community Halls and Recreational Facilities are closed until further notice. Council has put additional hygiene practices (including more frequent cleaning) in place at all of our public toilets including our Council Office and Depot. All non-essential meetings and events have been cancelled or postponed until further notice.
