"The bushfires brought us together. Don't let the virus push us apart."

The Hills is a caring community and it is important we work together to overcome COVID-19 (Coronavirus) challenges and prioritise the needs of our more vulnerable residents.

As individuals we all have a part to play in slowing the spread of the virus and I thank you for your patience and diligence in putting social distancing measures into effect. For those of you also affected by the Cudlee Creek bushfire, please be assured that we will continue to maintain a focus on our bushfire recovery efforts.

Your Council is implementing a planned response to ensure crucial services to the community can continue, albeit in a limited or changed format, in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our residents and staff.

    Face masks

    Face masks are an additional physical barrier and help to stop the spread of COVID-19.

    At this time in South Australia it is not mandatory for the general community, but it is recommended to wear a mask when out in public if you are unable to physically distance.

    Children under 12 years of age do not need to wear a mask, as they may not be able to handle it safely.

    Masks or face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

    Please be respectful to others as reasons for not wearing a mask are not always obvious.

    The best ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 continue to be:

    • Getting tested if you have any symptoms, no matter how mild.
    • Practicing physical distancing (keep 1.5 metres between yourself and others wherever and whenever possible).
    • Washing (or sanitising) your hands regularly.
    • Wiping down frequently touched surfaces.
    • Covering coughs and sneezes in a tissue or elbow.
    • Staying home and avoiding others when sick.

    Read more about when and how to wear a mask on the SA Health website.

    [Updated 2:30pm Friday 22 November]

    In light of the latest COVID-19 updates from the state government, most of our services and facilities are returning to normal availability in the coming days. We will be reviewing government health advice as it is issued and determine if any further changes are needed.

    At this point:

    • Coventry Library, Stirling, will be open for its usual hours from Sunday 22 November.
    • All other Council service and community centres (Stirling, Gumeracha, Woodside and Norton Summit), will be open at their usual hours from Monday 23 November, and home support services will resume from this time.
    • Council play spaces, sport, and recreation facilities will be open for usual use from Sunday 22 November.
    • Planning and building in-person inspections will resume from Monday 23 November.
    • Heathfield Resource Recovery Centre, including household chemical and paint drop off, resumes its usual hours from Sunday 22 November.

    All library programs, community centre and positive ageing programs remain on pause.

    Please note that due to the timing of this announcement, and associated difficulties in coordinating all participants, the Stirling Market and Stirling Laneways events remain cancelled for Sunday 22 November.

    We recommend that our community continues to monitor updates from SA Health for official reports.

    To remain up-to-date with any further changes to Council services in particular, please follow us on Facebook.
