COVID-19

Central Hawke's Bay District Council is committed to ensuring we continue to deliver our essential services while supporting the response efforts and the ongoing security of our infrastructure, while also turning our minds to prepare our community for COVID-19.

We are constantly planning and following Ministry of Health advice regarding community and staff health.

We will let the community know immediately of any changes to services or facility operations in relation to COVID-19.

Council encourages the community to follow the advice, guidance and direction of the Ministry of Health and the Government in their role as the lead agencies.
