CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

The Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes has established a 'COVID-19 Response Group' to help develop our response and contingency plan for the potential up-scaling/intensification of COVID-19. This group meets as required and receives information from various State Government agencies as it comes to hand.

For all matters relating to COVID-19 Local Governments are taking advice from the WA Dept of Health who are the lead agency in this State.
