This afternoon we heard a major announcement from the Prime Minister in relation to COVID-19, and the steps she’s taking to eliminate the spread across New Zealand.
We’re continuing to follow the guidance of the Ministry of Health and that means effective from 5.00pm Monday 23 March 2020, our non-essential facilities will be closed. This includes, but is not limited to, libraries, swimming pools, playgrounds, the Central Hawke’s Bay Museum and Central Hawke’s Bay Municipal Theatre. To see the full list of facility closures here: https://www.chbdc.govt.nz/our-council/covid-19/
What this means is that anyone outside of essential services must stay home and stop all interactions with others outside of those in your households. We know this is a big ask. However eradicating the disease is vital to protect people’s health and ensure our health system can cope and look after New Zealanders who become sick.
Our office will be closed, however you can still call us on 06 857 8060 24 hours, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff will advise what services are available to you. Please be assured that you will still have access to water, and your kerbside refuse and recycling collection will continue. Transfer Stations and Recycling Drop Off centres will be closed from tomorrow.
