It’s simple – get vaccinated
Published on 16 July 2021
Moira Shire Council Mayor Libro Mustica and Councillors showed overwhelming support to approve a day in lieu for Council staff who were fully vaccinated.
“This day is a ‘thank you’ to those staff who have helped to safeguard our community,” Cr Mustica said.
“I have had my vaccination and I encourage the whole Moira community to do the same.
“It would be great if we could be the shire with the greatest number of people immunised.”
CEO Clare Keenan said the uptake of COVID-19 vaccinations by staff to date was very good.
“This update is indicative of the fact our staff are responsible people who care about others,” Ms Keenan said.
“Council provides a range of essential services, from school crossing guards to waste and facilities management, and maternal and child health services.
“Almost all staff engage with the public to some degree and as a major regional employer we want to lead the way in beating this pandemic.”
