COVID–19 UPDATE AND REACTIVATION PLAN

In response to the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions under the NSW Public Health Order, Oberon Council will commence its staged reactivation from Monday 25 May 2020. To allow face to face transactions and ensuring Council meets its social distancing requirements a booking system will be implemented in the initial stage. Members of the public needing to visit the Council Administration Office including the Council’s Service NSW Agency are asked to phone 02 6329 8100 for an appointment prior to attending the office. 

Our priority remains the safety and well-being of our community, staff and volunteers. As such our customer service team is able to conduct most transactions via phone 02 63298100, email council@oberon.nsw.gov.au and website www.oberon.nsw.gov.au to ensure members of our community can access Council services, pay their rates, report a problem or consult our planning staff without the need to leave their homes.

The Oberon Library remains closed at this point in time due to the current Public Health Orders however as part of our stage 2 operations (and further reduction in restrictions) it is envisaged that a operation will return in the near future. Currently, library staff are providing phone in and collect service to members who would like library resources and are able to assist setting people up on personal devices to access eBooks via Borrowbox. Please contact 02 6329 8220 to speak to one of the friendly library staff members. 

The Visitor Information Centre is handling all visitor enquiries via phone (02) 6329 8210 or email tourism@oberon.nsw.gov.au. Updates regarding reopening of the centre will be provided in the near future in line with the Public Health Orders and Councils Reactivation Plan.

Essential services including water, sewer, road maintenance and rubbish services have remained unchanged during the pandemic.

Please note if you are feeling unwell, displaying any symptoms or feel you may have come into contact with anyone with COVID-19 we ask that you do not come into the office, please phone the Oberon Medical Centre on (02) 6336 1505 for a phone consultation. 

Council is encouraging the public to install the CovidSafe App and maintain social distancing and hygiene protocols.

Oberon Council will continue to respond to changes to the NSW Public Health Order as part of its staged reactivation and will communicate all updates on its website www.oberon.nsw.gov.au and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/oberoncouncil

Oberon Council wishes to thank the community for their ongoing assistance during this unprecedented time and asks for patience while we transfer out of the current restrictions.
