CLOSURES TO Playground, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds, and Tennis Courts
New government advice is that indoor and outdoor playgrounds must be closed in response to the COVID-19 Situation.
Colac Otway Shire has been advised to close playgrounds to the public to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and we are urging families to do the right thing and stay home.
Caravan Parks and Camping Grounds
At the direction of the Chief Health Officer Victoria campsites, caravan parks and camping grounds will now be closed to visitors.
The only people permitted to remain will be:
- People who already have the caravan park registered as their primary place of residence; and
- People staying in caravan parks as interim accommodation where their primary residence is not available (including those of no fixed address and people placed in emergency housing by DHHS).
Tennis Victoria has advised that all tennis activity should cease in response to the Covid-19 situation. All Colac Otway Shire tennis courts will be closed to the public until further notice.
