Still no new cases

Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has confirmed a total of 53 cases of COVID-19 have been formally identified within the District. The announcement follows recent tests which were verified in the last 24 hours. There are no new reported cases.
None of these confirmed cases have required hospitalisation and are self-isolating accordingly.
Southern NSW Local Health District Public Health Unit is in contact with each confirmed case and their close contacts, advising them to self-isolate for 14 days from when they were last with the confirmed case. They have also been advised to seek medical attention should they experience symptoms.
Identifying close contacts ensures that those people who may be at risk take the necessary steps to avoid any further transmission. It is essential that everyone plays a part in containing the spread of COVID-19 by practising good hygiene measures including:
 Clean your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand rub.
 Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with tissue or a flexed elbow.
 Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
 Stay at home, only leave if it is absolutely essential.
Southern NSW Local Health District has established COVID-19 Assessment Centres throughout the District, so those with symptoms may be tested and treated quickly.
Any one heading to an assessment centre MUST call the SNSWLHD Central Intake Service – 1800 999 880 (option 1) before attending.
You will ONLY be tested if you fit the COVID-19 testing criteria.
This testing can take up to two days to complete and report back.

LOCAL TENNIS COACHING IS TO CONTINUE

Local tennis coach Tom Perea is continuing his business in accordance with the latest Federal Government and Tennis NSW, adapting to these restrictions by providing only one-on- one and family coaching sessions.
This has allowed him to develop young players on a more personal level, analysing each player closely and doing as much as possible without any danger of infection.
Rules such as no touching of the balls for participants means usual lessons must be changed.
Tom is providing 30-minute lessons as opposed to the usual one-hour group lessons, meaning that more of each player’s individual game can be developed.

All courses have accepted mandatory rules for this reopening, with players unable to share a cart, clubs, scorecard or sand buckets.
Golf carts are also only allowed to carry one bag of clubs, with social distancing regulations to be enforced at all Clubs.
Flags are not to be removed and the rakes in bunkers and

Any other hygienic information will be displayed at the courses. By following these strict regulations this exercise will remain available to those interested in playing.

INTERSCHOOLS OFF

Snow Australia has been forced to cancel Interschools events up until July 18.
This decision was made in accordance with the COVID-19 policies of host resorts Thredbo and Perisher. Lengthy correspondence with NSW Schools Systems on the health and safety of competitors was also an important part of the decision making process.

The remainder of the scheduled Interschools events are to go ahead as planned, with a decision to be made in May on whether or not these events will be safe to continue.
“We appreciate that this initial decisionmayaffectmanychamber members and their businesses, and we acknowledge the wide- spread support of chamber members for our events, visiting schools, families and participants over the past 33 years. “Rest assured this decision has not been taken lightly and we do understand the concerns and interests of the industry,” said Steve Cooper, Snow Australia’s Participation Committee Chairman in last Thursday’s media release.

SCHOOLS OPERATE ONLINE

The decision not to close schools across the country has proven to be one of the more controversial aspects of the Federal and State Government response to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) global pandemic.
While the NSW government has advised parents to keep their children home, they have refrained from closing schools outright to avoid placing strain on working families, keeping them open until the school holidays officially begin on April 10.
“We are encouraging parents to keep their children at home,” New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters on Monday March 23.
“We appreciate that for some parents that is not possible, so
schools will remain open. No child will be turned away from school.”
However, many private schools across the country, including Snowy Mountains Grammar School, have already made the decision to close down and transition to online remote learning, a transition that all schools are preparing for ahead of further shutdowns.
SMGS teachers have been using a remote video conferencing program called Zoom to host virtual classes for students across a range of subjects.
While public schools are still required to remain open, many students are staying home and teachers at schools such as Monaro High are also making the switch to online and virtual
classrooms.
“Teachers have been dealing
with incredibly mixed messages regarding Covid-19, while planning and teaching a full allocation of classes. They have also been dealing with the uncertainty behind the expectations of supporting ongoing educational material for students and families into the future,” a Monaro High spokesperson said.

PETROL PRICES UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT

Over the past six months, Cooma’s petrol prices have been some of the highest in the state, according to Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) reports.
The ACCC publishes a quarterly report, looking at petrol prices across the country, including Cooma in the 65 NSW towns and cities.
Fuel prices in Cooma, like many regional towns, are frequently higher than prices in cities.
A local freight company told The Monaro Post it paid an average of 114c per litre, plus GST, for diesel fuel in Canberra last month. In Cooma, the business paid an average of 134c, plus GST.
According to the business owner, this difference in price of 20c per litre far exceeds the cost of transporting fuel from Canberra to Cooma. It is also a significant cost for the company, which can use up to 60,000L of fuel per month.
According to the Australian Institute of Petroleum’s ‘Facts about Prices in Regional and Country Areas’ publication, the ACCC says “certain operating costs (eg. rent and maintenance) for running a service station may be roughly the same no matter how many litres of fuel are sold.”
Therefore, “over the long run (regional service stations) must sell their fuel products at higher prices than city service stations so they can cover the fixed costs involved with running a service station.”

Obviously the petrol stations have no clue on their marketing strategy and because of the higher prices that business using 60k litres would be pouring as much as possible in Canberra. It's not what you can make, it's what you are losing to competition and don't know about is what businesses should be asking themselves. I myself pour as much as I can outside of Cooma. If X amount of people and large businesses are doing the same...🙈

I am in singleton in the hunter Valley and cooma normally has cheaper fuel than here. I just filled up with diesel and cost 1.37 $ which was cheep for here

COMMUNITY ANGER AT SUPER TURBINES FOR BROWN MOUNTAIN

The local community is incensed by the announcement from the proposed Granite Hills Wind Farm developers that they now intend to increase the size of the wind turbines from 200 metres to 230 metres high.
The initial proposal by Akuo Energy, a French company, was for 32 X 200 metre high turbines. This has now been amended to 23 X 230 metre high turbines.
The plan is to spread turbines from the Snowy Mountains Highway, north along Steeple Flat Road and Old Bega Road, and almost down to Cochran Dam in the east.
These 230 metre high monsters (currently the largest in Australia) will be almost double the current size of the Boco Rock Wind Farm turbines west of Nimmitabel (130 metres).
There are only four structures in Sydney that will be taller. With a blade diameter of around 170 metres, each turbine will be the size of a 70 storey building.
Kitt Bryce, Chairman of the 22 member Brown Mountain Residents’ Group, said his members had a growing number of concerns about the proposal.
“Given the damage wrought by the recent fires in terms of loss of life and property, plus native wildlife, habitat and vegetation; impact on streams and ground water systems; and the increasing reliance on aerial fire fighting in this sort of terrain, we believe that, more than ever, this development is not sustainable,” said Mr Bryce.

I don't understand the desire for them at all. Wind turbines are not as efficient as they are made out to be. But good luck with trying to prevent this development, it's a really bad idea.

It sounds like there'd have to be considerable land clearing to make way for these monsters in one of the only corners of that forest untouched by fire! Surly we've lost enough! Why not just build more near the others where it's already cleared land?!

There are so many birds in the region, and a lot of them raptors etc. This could be really bad for the local wildlife. Also in 30 years what are we going to do with the blades that cannot be recycled or repaired. More landfill?

We can always mine more coal which do you prefer. I work as a coal miner in the hunter Valley if you want to see damage to the environment come have a look around here. I know I would prefer more wind turbines than coal mines

This might be a stupid question but would it not fan the flames in a bush fire?

I suggest you look up our website. We are currently fighting the inappropriate siting of a wind farm, 33 x 250m high turbines surrounded by 1000+ residents, amongst a pine plantation in Gippsland Victoria. www. strzeleckicommunityalliance.com

SEGMENT FACTORY GREEN LIGHT

More than 150 new jobs will be created and $55 million injected into regional NSW, as the NSW Government gives the go- ahead for construction of the Snowy Hydro Segment Factory – the next crucial stage of the Snowy 2.0 expansion.
Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the approval of the Snowy Hydro Segment Factory was fantastic news for the region, with construction of the concrete production facility to begin within weeks.
“The Snowy Hydro Scheme is part of the folklore of the Monaro and this approval means work can get underway on a critical part of the project’s infrastructure which will provide huge benefits and job opportunities for the area,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Around 150 jobs will be created as part of the new infrastructure with many of these being entry-level positions, with all training provided.
“These opportunities couldn’t
come at a better time with many in our community facing unexpected unemployment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the planning system has a key role to play in keeping the economy moving both now and in the months ahead.
“We’re working to get shovel-ready projects out the door, to create jobs and drive investment into our local economies during these extraordinary times,” Mr Stokes said.
“This project will unlock new industry investment in regional NSW, creating 30 jobs during construction and about 125 jobs once operational.”
Construction of the factory is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Harry Mould produced a blistering first eight holes with 25 points and although he got into a bit of trouble on the last ten holes his total of 40 points was enough to give him a two shot victory over Col Langdon with 38 points.
