Penrith City Council is again providing an opportunity for residents to stay connected in a safe way through its Good Neighbour Program.
The Program encourages residents to check on their neighbours with ready-made cards, which can assist in identifying what community members may require while they stay at home during the current Public Health Orders due to COVID-19.
Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM said that looking out for one another would keep our community spirit high and help those who have really felt the impact of the ongoing pandemic.
“At Council, we understand the ongoing restrictions can be a challenge and maintaining the wellbeing of our residents during this time is of utmost importance,” Cr McKeown said.
“These small cards can make a big difference as they allow the community to maintain safe social distancing while connecting with neighbours and offering a helping hand.
“Whether you’re heading out to grab some essentials or taking your daily walk, I encourage residents to pop one of these cards in a neighbour’s letterbox – you never know who might need the random show of support.”
The isolation cards are available to download at penrith.city/goodneighbour
