Drive thru to pick up your COVID-19 Safety Pack

Thursday, 19 August

Lismore City Council will operate two drive-thru services to distribute face masks, hand sanitiser and disinfection wipes to help the community stay safe during COVID-19.

The COVID-19 protection “packs” have been supplied by Resilience NSW. Each consists of 50 face masks, a 500 ml bottle of hand sanitiser and a pack of 100 disinfectant wipes.

Distribution Centres will be set up at the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre and the Lismore Library in Magellan Street that will allow members of the community to collect their packs from the safety of their vehicles.

Both Distribution Centres will open from Friday, 20 August and operate 9am to noon and 1pm to 3pm Monday to Friday.

Motorists accessing the Library Distribution Centre are asked to enter through the Rural Street Carpark and exit via Magellan Street, while those accessing the GSAC Distribution Centre are asked to enter via Oliver Avenue.

We ask that those who are collecting packs to remain in their vehicle at all times, wear a face mask and follow COVID-19 safety guidelines at all times.

Both Distribution Centres are contactless drive-thru ONLY services.

Council is currently working with various community organisations to establish walk-in Distribution Centres for those without vehicles.

Any community organisation that would like to assist in the distribution of these COVID-safety packs, can call Council on 6625 0500.

We are also working to deliver the packs to ‘at-risk’ groups, such as our indigenous community and the elderly, through organisations that cater for their needs.
