COVID service updates 19 June 2020
Here's the latest news our COVID-19 impacted service changes.
Maternal and Child Health is back to full face-to-face service delivery. While we were able to provide most services online, it is good to be back in person.
Seymour Resource Recovery Centre is re-opening on Saturday (20 June) after some COVID safety works to better separate the centre from the landfill which also collects all of Council’s kerbside waste.
Libraries will allow browsing of books again from Monday 22 June. Safety is paramount so there will be rules in place including providing contact details upon entering and limited capacity in the centres. For now, our computers, Wi-Fi and seated areas remain closed but we plan to safely bring these back in coming weeks.
Our Customer Service Centres re-opened last Monday for face to face services. We’ve also had a lot of interest in when Learners’ Permits will restart at Kilmore. VicRoads has advised that they are working through previously booked learner permit tests and they expect to open for new appointments in a few weeks.
Lap swimming, aqua classes and water therapy have returned to our Seymour and Kilmore leisure services. Book now as classes and lanes are filling fast. Great news with the change rooms able to re-open next week too, which will make it much easier for pool users to beat the winter chills. Time and number limits still apply in the pools and change rooms, you can find out more here
Gymnasiums at Kilmore Leisure Centre and Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre's will reopen, post COVID-19 closure, on Monday 22 June at 6am. Bookings are essential to support limited capacity and increased cleaning.
We were planning to re-introduce indoor group classes on Monday 29 June. The recent changes to COVID restrictions means we are reviewing our timetable and will be at a reduced capacity initially. An update on indoor classes will be provided soon.
