Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) is assisting local food premises to help ensure businesses are aware of the need to comply with COVID-19 Public Health Orders.

Commencing immediately, at the request of the Local Government Minister The Honourable Shelley Hancock, DRC staff will be focussing on education and reinforcement.

Council’s Environmental Health Officers will be hitting the streets, visiting various food outlets in the local government area to chat about their COVIDSafe plans, and to see if there’s anything Council can do to help businesses understand the Public Health Orders.

NSW Health Officers and police will be checking in with clubs and hotels.

Under the government and Council guidelines, any food premises that refuse to cooperate, or is trading without observing COVIDSafe requirements, will be reported to police for follow up.

Any business operator that has questions or needs guidance preparing their COVIDSafe Plan are encouraged to visit:
