In response to government-enforced shut-downs and measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Indigo Shire Council has closed:
- Customer Service Centres
- Burke Museum and Historic Precinct
- Visitor Information Centres
- Swimming pools
The meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 31 is set to go ahead at this stage, but the council is strongly discouraging gallery attendance as there isn't enough physical space at the Beechworth shire offices to abide by the 1.5 metre social distancing requirements.
The council is also enacting elements of its Business Continuity Plan and Pandemic Plan to identify and implement appropriate measures to support staff and the community.
Towong Council is not accepting walk-ins to service centres, and the Upper Murray Recovery Hub remains open with a maximum three visitors allowed at any time and social distancing in place.
Corryong and Tallangatta Libraries are no longer accepting walk-in visits. We are working on ways to evolve our services and will keep you updated.
Wodonga Council has shut its community centres, library and Leisure Centre, with the council's office at Hovell Street to be open for appointments only from Thursday.
Albury Council's Albury and Lavington libraries remain open, while the Retro Youth Cafe and airport eatery are providing takeaway food only.
Lauren Jackson stadium, MAMA and the entertainment centre have closed.
