Easing of COVID restrictions

Reduced COVID restrictions are now in place which means proof of vaccination will no longer be required for people entering Council premises.

However, people must still use the QR Code Check-in at our Children’s Services locations, for functions at the Bega Valley Commemorative Civic Centre and the Sapphire Aquatic Centre’s gym.

Our front-of-house hospitality staff will wear masks indoors and protective screens will continue to be used in public facing areas such as Customer Service, libraries and the front counter of the Sapphire Aquatic Centre.
