A message from the Mayor 

26 December 2020

Waverley Council and the Waverley community has worked extremely hard this year to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by observing all Public Health Orders and health advice.

We are appalled by the behaviour that was displayed by a group of people visiting Bronte Beach yesterday. This kind of behaviour threatens to undo the good work of Council and the entire community.

Please do not visit our public places if you refuse to observe Public Health Orders and current health advice- you pose too great a health risk. If you are feeling unwell, please, stay at home and get tested and remain at home until you receive a negative result.

Waverley Council will continue to work with NSW Police and other agencies to ensure people use our public places safely. If you observe people failing to social distance or exceed limits on public outdoor gatherings, please report it to police. Waverley Council Rangers continue to monitor our public places and our Beach Ambassadors are doing a fantastic job promoting the safe use of Bondi, Bronte and Tamarama beaches.

Please, let’s continue to respond to this pandemic with vigilance and observe Public Health Orders and health advice at all times. Many families are unable to be together this time of year because of restrictions on movement and border closures, so we must continue to be considerate and do the right thing.

Paula Masselos

Mayor of Waverley
