COVID-19 Update, Resources and Support

Albury Business - Update #5 - Monday 18 May 2020


Following a number of challenging weeks, we are pleased to start to see some light at the end of the tunnel with restrictions starting to ease. We are starting to see more people out and about and businesses reopening their doors. Our business community have been leading in new ways of doing business and we encourage you to keep that innovation focus front of mind.

Inland Rail Conference moving ahead in 2021

We look forward to welcoming the Conference and highlighting what our region has to offer visitors and potential investors.


The COVIDSafe app is part of the Australian Government's work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Having confidence to be able to find and contain outbreaks quickly will mean governments can ease restrictions while still keeping Australians safe.

The COVIDSafe app is completely voluntary. The more Australians connecting to the app, the quicker the virus can be found in the community and we can get back to business.
