Face masks encouraged from Monday


A number of businesses are encouraging us to 'mask-up' from tomorrow, to assist in stopping the spread of COVID19.

Due to the spike in Coronavirus cases, Bunnings has moved to have all staff wear face coverings, and is asking that all customers do the same. Meantime Woolworths is encouraging all staff and customers to follow suit, and wear a mask or facial covering, to combat the spread of the virus.

As of Friday there were 132 confirmed cases for the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, with an update expected tomorrow afternoon. 17 new cases of COVID19 were diagnosed in NSW yesterday, and only 3 of those are returned travellers in hotel quarantine.
