COVID-19 Information

The Shire of Gingin is committed to continuing to service the community to the extent of our abilities whilst Australia deals with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Restrictive measures have been implemented and eased over the past few months. They have affected our communities, friends, families and local businesses in ways we couldn't have envisioned just six months ago when so much of Australia was in the grip of a bush fire season like we'd never experienced before.

The Shire would like to echo many organisations, governments, groups and individuals the world over that:

We are in this together. 

We will continue to conduct our day to day business as much as we are able and to support out communities through this trying time. The following information is provided to advise the community about our services and how they are affected and also to provide useful links to other resources.
