Central Coast Council has announced that it is likely the closure of some major facilities will stay in place until 30 June as Council continues to respond to Federal and State Government restrictions about the spread of Coronavirus.

Chief Executive Officer, Gary Murphy said Council's priority is the health of staff and the Central Coast community and continuing to deliver essential services.

"Our job right now is ensuring we play our part in managing as best we can the spread of COVID-19, and to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and community," Mr Murphy said.

"I want to assure the community that all our essential services are not interrupted, and this includes water and sewer; collection and management of waste; development assessments; road repairs; online library services; child care centres and public toilets remaining open.

"While the beach lifeguard season has ended and playspaces, skate parks have closed in accordance with State and Federal Government guidelines; our beaches, parks and reserves remain open to residents for the purpose of exercise only.

"I remind everyone to comply with the restrictions which minimise outdoor gatherings to two people unless they are members of the same household.

"Recreate not congregate, is what we are asking our community to continue to do," said Mr Murphy.

Currently, the restrictions in place continue to operate which means there will be no public access to Council's Wyong and Gosford administration buildings, libraries, leisure centres, gyms, pools, the Gosford Regional Gallery, Edogawa Commemorative Garden, The Entrance Visitor Information Centre, Gosford Smart Work Hub and all community facilities such as halls.

"We continue to work closely with all levels of government so that we can respond to any changes in restrictions," added Mr Murphy.

"Should we be able to open any of our facilities safely, we will do so."
