The Working for Victoria scheme's community cleansing blitz is coming to Cardinia Shire!
You may notice Citywide cleansing workers hitting our local streets in stages from tomorrow (Saturday 16 May), working in shifts from 7am to 6pm daily, 7 days per week, for the next few weeks.
They'll be disinfecting frequently touched hard surfaces in public spaces, such as hand rails, poles, signs, furniture, bins and other public infrastructure, in a proactive attempt to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Victorian Government program complements the public space cleaning and maintenance work Council is already undertaking.
The taskforce of public space cleansing and sanitisation workers deployed across Melbourne communities will help prepare and keep public spaces clean, safe and healthy as our communities begin returning to everyday life.
The program is also helping to support workers displaced from their original jobs due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), providing them with work opportunities in other industries.
