Wellington Shire Council is calling on residents to share their concerns and suggestions about living well during the COVID-19 pandemic, via the Living Well During COVID-19 Survey. The survey will shape the Living Well During COVID-19 Plan, which will chart a course from responding to the virus to living well at a time of pandemic.

Council engaged with the community to understand how COVID-19 had impacted individuals, businesses, and the wider Wellington community, and began developing a Wellington Living Well During COVID-19 Plan. We are seeking your feedback on this plan

Suggestions to improve

Wellington Shire Council Mayor Garry Stephens said, "The pandemic has taken a toll on Wellington residents mental and physical well-being. Council understands that people want to feel secure and to be able to socialise again, so the survey will encourage respondents to share their suggestions on improving daily life," Cr Stephens said.

Addressed by the survey

Living well also means working well. Businesses have lost incomes, workers have lost jobs, and essential services have been disrupted, so paid and volunteer work, study and even some hobbies will also be addressed by the survey and plan.

Defence against the virus

Wellington residents have expressed concern about plans to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic from the vaccine rollout and testing to issues around physical wellbeing so the survey will take suggestions relating to our frontline defences against the virus.

Have your say

The Wellington Living Well During COVID-19 Plan is not a recovery plan. A plan for a post-COVID-19 recovery will come later, but the current survey will inform what a recovery phase might address. Have your say at living well during COVID-19.
