Greater Geelong Mayor Stephanie Asher
Everyone in our
community has put in a remarkable effort so far to help slow the spread of the
virus. The response
from the residents of Greater Geelong has been outstanding.
After weeks of
adhering to strict social distancing rules and guidelines, we have all been
anticipating the implementation of a safe and staged relaxation of
restrictions. But now is
definitely not the time for complacency. The safety and
wellbeing of our employees, volunteers and community remains the Council’s main
priority and the basis of all our actions. It is vital
that we all continue to stay the course and follow the restrictions and
guidelines that remain in place.
