Hastings District Council is committed to ensuring we continue to deliver our essential services should the community and our council staff be widely affected by the COVID-19 virus.
We are constantly planning and following Ministry of Health advice regarding community and staff health and this includes the potential to reduce services or close non-essential community facilities.
We will let the community know immediately of any changes to services or facility operations in relation to COVID-19.
Council encourages the community to follow the advice, guidance and direction of the Ministry of Health and the Government in their role as the lead agencies.
To find answers to frequently asked questions related to Council services and facilities impacted by the COVID-19 response please visit our COVID-19 FAQs page.
We will continue to update this page as new information becomes available.
