Isolation support – local business list
In April 2020, council compiled a list of local businesses and services operating during COVID-19. This town-by-town guide provided information to support people in our region who were social distancing, in self-isolation or quarantine. With restrictions lifting and businesses returning to standard operations, the self-isolation support list was provisionally retired on 3 July 2020. For enquiries, about the list, please contact the Connected Communities team on 1300 242 686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
