In this edition of The Hills Focus we detail Council’s COVID-19 assistance measures. I would encourage you to share this information with friends and family.
As you would be aware our health system is under heavy strain, our community has been in extended lockdown and businesses are unable to operate as normal. Council’s website has further support for business and community at this time, please do check this out.
As well, Council is in regular contact with NSW Health and Western Sydney Health regarding how we can support people during this time. There are a number of sites that are set up in the Shire for testing and vaccination. Council stands ready to offer assistance to our State and Federal counterparts and have responded to any requests received.
I will continue to support and advocate for measures to provide relief for residents who are undergoing financial duress during this time. The Hills Shire Council has a role to play in ensuring our community gets back on its feet sooner and that the Hills remains a great place to live, play and work.
If you, or someone you know needs crisis support; please contact Lifeline Crisis Support on 13 11 14.
