Councils' response to COVID-19

The Municipal Association of Victoria and Victoria's 79 councils are working hard to support their communities through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Alongside their own rapid adjustment to the Victorian Government’s Emergency Directions, councils have continued to provide essential services necessary for the health, amenity and safety of their communities.
