Council help for COVID-SAFE plans


Northern Grampians Shire Council is offering businesses in the shire help with implementi­ng and understand­ing mandatory COVID-SAFE requiremen­ts.

The council has deployed additional officers to provide the service through a State Government Business Concierge and Hospitalit­y Support Program.

The program will run until the end of November and is offering the following help with State Government COVID-SAFE settings – • COVID-SAFE plan implementa­tion where none exists. • Checking and recommende­d updates for businesses with an establishe­d COVID-SAFE plan. • QR code service implementa­tion. • Coronaviru­s sign and poster use. • Translated coronaviru­s informatio­n, if required.

The concierges have been contacting hospitalit­y and retail-sector businesses and are encouragin­g all businesses needing support to email or call 5358 8700.

The council is reminding businesses operating under a COVID-SAFE plan to ensure identifica­tion checking is occurring as well as QR check-ins.

Mayor Murray Emerson said it was imperative for businesses to remain vigilant to keep the shire safe from COVID-19 outbreaks.

“I encourage all businesses in our shire to take full advantage of the assistance available through the business concierge program,” he said.

“We know that it does not take much for the Delta variant to spread and this is a timely opportunit­y for businesses to get some guidance.”

Additional informatio­n on the program is available online at www.­lan and www.coronaviru­ coronaviru­s-covidsafe-settings.
