BULLI and Corrimal tourist parks are the latest Wollongong City Council services and facilities to be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Council has closed all its tourist parks, in response to updated guidelines from the NSW State Government.

The move to close public use of Council’s three tourist parks in Corrimal, Bulli and Windang, is the latest step by Council to protect vulnerable the community against coronavirus.

The parks will be closed to anyone who is not a long-term guest, or in the case of self-contained cabins, someone who needs accommodation for the purpose of essential travel only.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbury said campsites will no longer be available, new caravan sites will not be hired and public amenities have been closed.

“We are responding to all advice from the Federal and State Governments in terms of Council’s service levels,” he said.

“The changes we’ve announced today provide for those who need accommodation to manage their essential travel needs. However, as this is limited to self-contained cabins, it means people can follow social distancing and social isolation measures.

“I thank the community for their understanding as we continue to respond to challenges during this time.’’

Council has already closed public access to libraries, pools, art gallery and community centres, and have plans in place should it need to escalate how to continue to deliver services.

“We will continue to review and respond to updated advice and I ask everyone to support one another – follow the social distancing advice, follow NSW Health’s advice and keep washing those hands. In other words, keep separated, keep sane and keep sanitised,’’ Cr Bradbery said.
