Stay-at-home orders in Cowra LGA for seven days

Stay-at-home orders will be introduced for the Cowra Local Government Area (LGA) from 5pm today (Monday, Sept 20) for seven days due to an increased COVID-19 public health risk.

These stay-at-home orders also apply to anyone who has been in the Cowra LGA since 13 September.

Everyone in the Cowra LGA must stay at home unless it is for an essential reason, which includes shopping for food, medical care, getting vaccinated, compassionate needs, exercise and work or tertiary education if you can’t work or study at home.

People who are fully vaccinated can attend an outdoor gathering of up to five people for exercise or outdoor recreation, as long as all of those aged 16 or older are fully vaccinated.

To determine the extent of the risk and detect any further potential COVID-19 cases in these areas, we are calling on the communities to come forward for testing in large numbers.

A strong response to testing will be a key factor in determining if these stay-at-home orders are extended beyond one week. High vaccination rates are also essential to reduce the risk of transmission and protect the health and safety of the community.
