Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson called on all communities in the Lithgow LGA to continue to support the very competent initiatives that the Federal and State Governments have put in place to protect us as they navigate the current COVID – 19 emergency.

“We need all politicians and community members to unite behind what is proving to be an extremely competent response to the difficulties faced by our current government, and to avoid divisive actions that may disrupt the strategies that are in place” said Mayor Thomson.

“The Governments strategies focusing on

  • protecting employees, the unemployed and most vulnerable in our community ,
  • protecting our businesses,
  • social distancing,
  • arranging partnerships with private hospitals to access 34000 more hospital beds and more qualified nursing staff, and
  • Rental assistance to residential and commercial tenant

are the most targeted and welcomed strategies that I have witnessed in my political career, and deserve the support of all politicians and community members as this crisis unfolds” said the Mayor.

“For our part, we must support these strategies by staying at home where possible and maintaining the social distancing guidelines that have been mandated,” said the Mayor.
