Werriwa eNewsletter

27 November 2020

Dear <<First Name>>

Welcome to the latest edition of the Werriwa eNewsletter, I hope you all had a great week.

With the holiday season coming up and restrictions being eased there will be an increased amount of social interaction. This means there is a higher chance of COVID-19 transmission, especially with borders around Australia reopening.

This doesn't mean you can't enjoy a much needed break with friends, family and colleagues, but it's crucial everyone not become complacent. The virus is still in the community as the NSW Sewage Surveillance Program detected earlier this week. More information about this is in the eNewsletter below.

The weather is also heating up with temperatures reaching 40 degrees this weekend. Remember to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide and Stay hydrated if you are out in the sun.

Have a good weekend and keep well.

Kind Regards

Easing of Restrictions

Under a major easing of COVID-19 restrictions, more people will be allowed to gather both at home and in outdoor public spaces, and smaller hospitality venues can increase their capacity.

From Tuesday, 1 December:

  • Up to 50 people can visit a residence as long as an outdoor space is being utilised. However, it’s recommended no more than 30 people gather if the residence has no outdoor area.
  • Up to 50 people can gather outdoors in a public space (currently 30).
  • Small hospitality venues (up to 200 square metres in size) will be allowed to have one person per two square metres indoors.

From Monday, 14 December:

  • The Public Health Order requiring employers to allow employees to work from home (where it is reasonably practicable to do so) will be repealed.

As employees return to the office, workplaces are encouraged to have COVID-Safe plans. Employers are encouraged to stagger staff starting and finishing times to reduce the impact on public transport. Customers using public transport are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.

Werriwa Art Prize Winner

Last Saturday, I had the honour of announcing the inaugural Werriwa Art Prize at the 23rd Annual Liverpool Art Society Exhibition at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.

The Werriwa Art Prize is an award that best reflects the electorate of Werriwa. Choosing the winner was difficult as there were many worthy candidates. The winner displayed an artwork depicting the native flora and fauna of the Werriwa area. The piece highlights the diverse but disappearing biodiversity of the area.

The winner of the award was Vivian Messimeris for her piece; ‘A Degree of Difference (Regent Honeyeater)'.

Vivian used a silkscreen of cotton rag, depicting the Regent Honeyeater, a critically endangered bird that is native to the Badgerys Creek area. The artwork aims to raise awareness about the need to conserve our unique wildlife.

Congratulations Vivian for winning the inaugural Werriwa Art Prize. Her work will grace the cover of my 2021 Christmas Card.
