Lismore City Council is operating 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 500ml bottle of hand sanitiser and a pack of 100 disinfectant wipes.
Distribution centres will be set up at the Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre and the Lismore Library in Magellan Street and members of the community will collect their packs from the safety of their vehicles.
Both distribution centres ooperate 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 people collecting packs to remain in their vehicle at all times, wear a face mask and adhere to all COVID-19 safety guidelines.
- Both Distribution Centres are contactless drive-thru ONLY services.
Council is also working with various community organisations to establish walk-in Distribution Centres for those without vehicles.
Any community organisation that would like to assist distributing these COVID-safety packs, can call Council on 6625 0500.
We are also working to deliver the packs to specific groups, such as our indigenous community and the elderly, through appropriate organisations.
