About COVID-19 in Wollongong
Council has plans in place to support the continued delivery of services to you during the pandemic. We are constantly reviewing our plans to make sure we are prepared for any situation.
However, as this situation unfolds we may need to change, reduce or postpone services and events at short notice. If this happens, we will let you know.
We'll also continue working with NSW Health and other government agencies to provide support where we can. This includes things like sharing government announcements and making public spaces available for pop-up testing clinics.
For the latest updates on Council services, see the information at the top of this page, or visit our News page.
You can also follow us on Facebook for updates.
It is important to remember that the Wollongong area, often called the Wollongong Local Government Area (LGA), reaches from Helensburgh in the north to Windang and Yallah in the south. See the Wollongong LGA Map PDF, 655.39 KB for an overview of our area.
Advice from NSW Health applies to all of this Wollongong area unless otherwise specified.
