Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a constantly evolving situation and we will continue to keep you updated in regards to its impact locally. For the latest information please refer to the links below.
In an immediate support response to COVID-19 in April 2020, we launched Barossa Cares, to connect to vulnerable community members with the support and services most needed.
COVID-19 Recovery Plan
In May 2020 we released a COVID-19 Recovery Plan to support the community more broadly through the ongoing effects and in the recovery of the pandemic, including extended rate relief options.
In March 2021 we released COVID-19 Recovery Plan and Response to Tariff Impacts outlining a $470,000 up-front investment to support regional economic and community rebuilding.
The plan included a wide range of economic, social, and wellbeing measures to stimulate local activity including:
- a $50,000 community and club restart grant program
- tourism and marketing campaigns
- small business support from a $100,000 grant program
- event activation
- volunteer re-engagement
- a dedicated resource to deliver community, recreation, and sport development programs and support clubs and groups to restart.
