The Harvey shire libraries have cancelled their usual activities in line with the Federal Government ban on non-essential gatherings.

This morning Prime Minister Scott Morrison increased restrictions on mass gatherings to events of more than 100 people and placed an “indefinite ban” on overseas travel.

Shire of Harvey chief executive Annie Riordan said the cancellation of the activities was done to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“The Harvey shire libraries will not run their usual activities, including Storytime, Rhymetime, after school programs or any activities that involve a gathering of people,” she said.

“At this stage, the libraries will remain open within normal operating hours.

“The libraries' surfaces will be wiped down regularly with disinfectant throughout the day and social distancing will be observed.”
