Stay Home, Save Lives: Observe gatherings restrictions

Huon Valley Council would like to remind residents of current restrictions on gatherings and strong advice to stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary to go out.

This means being mindful not to gather in places where we are used to socialising, such as our public picnic shelters and outdoor seating and tables.

Getting out and about for exercise is still encouraged as part of a healthy lifestyle, but remember that gatherings must be kept to fewer than two people (not including household members or those in shared custody or other care arrangements).

This means usual gatherings in public spaces such as birthday parties and picnics are no longer allowed.

You should only leave your home for essential supplies or services, to go to work or school, exercise, or care for someone.
