Randwick Council staff, identified by their bright blue Spread Kindness Not Germs shirts, have hit the hot spots of Randwick City to remind people of the need to follow guidelines that help to slow the spread of COVID-19, Randwick Mayor Danny Said announced this week.

“Health officials have stated that the actions of Australians have already done a lot to limit the domestic coronavirus outbreak and have reminded us that now is not the time to become complacent,” explained Mayor Danny Said.

“This is great news. I know that Randwick City residents have already done so much to look out for their neighbours, to observe social distancing guidelines and find quiet spaces away from others when they exercise. By doing this they are protecting not only vulnerable members of our community but our healthcare services as well. It makes me incredibly proud to be the Mayor of Randwick City.

“Our staff will continue to promote the message that hand hygiene, staying home when you can and keeping distance between yourself and others is the way that we’ll continue to see a flattening of the curve. I’m confident that if people continue to observe these practices we’ll see positive results.”

Randwick Council staff will visit various parks, beach promenades, reserves and streets within Randwick City over the coming weeks, sharing their message.

Social distancing restrictions have been put in place by the Commonwealth and implemented by the relevant State Government authorities. Local Councils are not provided with any enforcement powers and no social distancing fines will be issued by the Spread Kindness staff.

Anyone wishing report any COVID-19 non-compliance or breaches, should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via their website www.nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
