BOMBALA'S NAB CUTTING BACK HOURS

Though no local jobs will be lost, NAB Bombala will be among the many regional branches that will have its opening hours dramatically reduced from August 17.
Staff will maintain the same number of hours, though the branch will only be open to the public for three hours a day, allowing staff to offer improved phone and digital services.
NAB is adapting the way it does banking in small regional branches, with a new model that it says will “see hundreds of jobs maintained and a more consistent banking experience for customers”.
Under the new model NAB will adjust opening hours across 114 smaller regional branches, with bankers splitting their time between over the counter service and digital or phone banking support, as more customers move online...

NO ACTIVE COVID CASES, BUT MASKS NOW RECOMMENDED

While there have still been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Snowy Monaro, the virus has been detected in the Perisher sewage treatment plant.
Samples were collected on Wednesday July 22, returning a positive result for the presence of COVID-19. The test was one of many undertaken across the state.
Further sampling and analysis is required to assess the significance of this initial positive result.
The result may be due to ‘shedding’ of the virus by someone who may have previously had the illness, which can occur up to four weeks later.
Any visitors to the Perisher area who are experiencing any symptoms, strongly encouraged to get tested...

Comment on Facebook MORE FLAUNT COVID ...

Maybe they should have those people in lock down, in that one property, might have more effect than fines.

Did he intimidate Police or attempt to intimidate Police? I’d be concerned if we had Police out on the road who were getting intimidated. But I guess it is a whole new world these days.

Close the ski season. These people don't care about the locals.

Send them bloody home OR put them in jail for a few nights to teach them a bloody lesson! Seriously when will ppl bloody learn!

For goodness - do these idiots have no conscience or respect for others 😡😡😡😡

The fines need to be more. Should be the same as Victoria

An illegal ministerial direction you forgot to mention.

It’s frustrating as hell. Commonsense 🤷🏼‍♀️

Why weren't they all sent packing home. We don't need these dickheads here

How are the fire brigade vehicles connected to the story?

Cut off their Centrelink that will sort it lol

Flout

Fucken arsehats, the lot of them. Forget fines, forget jail - make them work in a COVID ward where they have to watch people suffer and die - maybe that will make them wake the fuck up.

Fortunately we were staying with friends for the night but still hairy the next day. One thing about the Monaro, it can always give a good surprise. Drive safe everybody.

Their no better than Squatters ,want everything for nothing but expect everything handed to them

So who is paying the cleaner's to clean the toilets 3 times a day. Why can't they clean them? After all they aren't paying anything to live there. Sound's like my kid's 🤣🤔

Should be allowed and catered for.bring back showground camping areas.etc. local businesses would appreciate the extra consumers.

It's illegal, move the bludgers on. Hope they do by pass us. Can't wait to see the back of them. If you want to rant please learn to spell, know who the idiots are here.

Well move them on, simple.

If it’s illegal why aren’t the cops moving people on ?

Well wear the hell do you won’t too park but l suppose you don’t mind them spending there money in your towns do you get over it

well i hope they black band your town then bye pass get over it you whinning idiots

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has confirmed NIL new reported cases of COVID-19 attributed to the District in the last 24 hours @ 2300, Tuesday 28 July, 2020.
NSW Health’s daily COVID 19 update is released here.
The District further praises the local communities across the local health district which have turned out for COVID-19 testing, with strong testing numbers being recorded across the Local Health District.
NSW Health has recently started a research program to test sewage for traces of COVID-19 across the state. This research supports the public health response to the pandemic. Sampling has commenced at a number of metropolitan and regional locations across NSW. Initial samples collected at the Perisher sewage treatment plant on Wednesday 22 July 2020 returned a positive result for the presence of COVID-19. It is important to note that no cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Perisher or Thredbo to date.
Further sampling and analysis is required to assess the significance of this initial positive result.
The positive sewage result can be due to shedding of the virus by someone who may have previously had the illness, with the virus ‘shedding’ through their system for up to four weeks later.
The positive result does serve as a timely reminder that locals and visitors to the region need to remain vigilant regarding social distancing, hygiene and the need to isolate and get tested if the need arises.
Southern NSW Local Health District has stepped up testing throughout Monaro and Alpine region in close consultation with local GPs, ski field operators and the local National Parks staff.
The District has testing facilities at the following locations:
 Perisher Clinic, NSW National Parks Building Perisher Valley, will operate extended hours from 9:30am – 2pm daily until further notice.
 Jindabyne Clinic will operate with double capacity at the new, larger location at HealthOne Car park, 5 Thredbo Terrace, Jindabyne from 9am – 4pm daily until further notice.
 Cooma Clinic at the Cooma Hospital & Health Service, will have extra swabbing capacity during normal hours of 9am – 5pm daily until further notice.
Meanwhile, the Thredbo Clinic, Friday Drive behind the Information Centre, also remains open 9:30am – 2pm daily until further notice.
SNSWLHD is urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhoea or muscle aches – to self-isolate and seek COVID- 19 testing, so cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible.
There is no longer a requirement to schedule appointments at most of the District’s COVID- 19 testing sites.
Callers to the SNSWLHD 1800 999 880 COVID line will be provided with information on testing eligibility and clinic times and locations.
These testing sites include Goulburn Base Hospital, Queanbeyan District Hospital, Eurobodalla Health Service (Moruya), South East Regional Hospital (SERH), Cooma District Hospital, Jindabyne Clinic and Yass District Hospital as well as the ‘pop-up’ clinics at Hanging Rock and Crookwell. See our website at: www.snswlhd.health.nsw.gov.au.
A number of our smaller COVID testing sites will still be by appointment only (Pambula
Hospital, Bombala MPS and Eden) – call 1800 999 880 (option 2).
It remains essential that everyone maintains social distancing and good hygiene to minimise the risk of spread between people. People can unwittingly pass COVID-19 to others if they are incubating the virus or have very mild symptoms.
There are steps we can take to protect ourselves and loved ones:
- If you have even mild symptoms, a cold or cough, get tested and stay home until you’re cleared
- Keep your 1.5m distance from others at all times even if you are well
- If you have been in Victoria, don’t mix with other people until two weeks has
passed
- Practise good hand hygiene at all times
- Consider wearing a mask if you are in a situation where you cannot socially distance.
For the latest, up to date information head

Comment on Facebook Visit NSW Government...

So they’re testing the sewage and it came up positive in Perisher. They say this could be caused by some shedding the virus. So what’s the point of testing it if they don’t act. SHUTDOWN THE SKI SEASON NOW.

So am I am reading this correctly- there is no testing in Thredbo ??

What pathway? We don't have one in Bogong Street. We don't even have a pedestrian strip at all. You have to walk on the road to get around the telegraph poles. Kids walk down the road to go to school.

It’s not just Jindabyne look at all the other towns there far worse

SOUTHERN MONARO SOAKED BY MUCH-NEEDED RAINFALL

More much needed rain fell around the district at the beginning of this week, with the view to spring being a more positive one than in recent years.
This rain is the result of another east coast low across the Snowy Monaro and Bega Valley, with solid falls of over an inch across the majority of the area.
The Bombala area again experienced the heaviest falls, with up to 100 millimetres falling around Cathcart, the area that has had the most rain this month.

At about 2.30pm, Mr Charles was at the site of the newly erected Nimmity Bell, at Geldmacher House, when the 1.8 tonne bell apparently came loose from its gudgeon, falling on top of Mr Charles, crushing his leg and trapping him within the bell itself.
