The City of Casey community may experience some changes to council services due to the ongoing impacts of Covid-19.
The Maternal Child Health (MCH) service is currently being impacted due to staff being affected by Covid-19, who are complying with testing and isolation requirements.
This reduction in available MCH staff means some appointments will need to be rescheduled to when a qualified nurse is available.
Due to reduced capacity, there may also be a delay in admin staff members being able to return calls, and the First Time Parent Groups and Sleep Settling Information Sessions are now being run online.
People registered for these sessions will be contacted directly either by phone or email.
Families who may be concerned about missing their upcoming appointments are encouraged to call the Maternal and Child Health Line on 13 22 29, or a local general practitioner.
The Cranbourne and Hampton Park Youth Information Centres (YIC) will also close temporarily.
Narre Warren remains open for specific appointments only, including youth counselling and support.
People can register their interest for virtual sessions by visiting the Youth Services Facebook and Instagram pages.
Council is assessing the Teenage School Holiday Program, which started on Monday, 10 January, on a day-to-day basis.
In line with the new density limits, some programs have been adjusted to maximise safety for staff and participants.
“As always, the health and safety of our staff and the community remain our main priority. Thank you for your patience and understanding,” council’s website states.
“For the safety of our staff and community, we will continue to comply with all Covid-Safe requirements and are working hard to maintain our services with as little disruption as possible throughout this time.”
The council website will have up-to-date information on any changes, delays or disruptions to services and facilities.
