“Our residents are often forced out of town to buy a pair of undies!”
The Edward River Council have hit out at the decision to remove the region from the border bubble.
It was last night announced that six shires - including Edward River - would no longer be considered part of the border bubble.
Edward River Council mayor Norm Brennan says the decision is unnecessary and potentially dangerous.
“Without a single Covid case in the LGA since the start of the pandemic, we are at a loss to understand how this decision was made,” he said.
“We have no major highways in our LGA - we do not get a large amount of through traffic from anywhere and our community absolutely relies on access to Victoria for essential services including but not limited to health and education.
