Service updates - COVID 19


NSW/Vic border closures

NSW has temporarily shut its border with Victoria to contain the spread of COVID-19. 

From Friday 4 September, a single border region was reinstated that extends to around 50 kilometres on either side of the border.

This means all of Murray River Council is now within the border region. If you usually reside in the border region you will be eligible for a ‘border region resident’ permit.

Agricultural worker permits

Permits are now available on Service NSW website for critical agricultural workers. An overview and eligibility information can be found here.
