Help shape the Gannawarra's COVID-19 recovery
Published on 07 July 2020
Gannawarra Shire residents are encouraged to help shape the municipality’s social and economic recovery from COVID-19 by completing Council’s COVID-19 Community Health, Wellbeing and Recovery Survey.
Developed by Council with the support of the Gannawarra Community Resilience Committee, the survey gauges how residents have coped during the COVID-19 pandemic and what support is needed to return to a COVID-safe society.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all in different ways, and it is important that these perspectives are recorded to assist with the recovery process,” Mayor Learmonth said.
“Responses received will assist the Gannawarra Community Resilience Committee, which consists of 26 agencies, to guide the Gannawarra’s social and economic recovery from a pandemic in what continues to be an uncertain time.”
Two versions of the COVID-19 Community Health, Wellbeing and Recovery Survey have been developed:
- A community version that asks what residents have done differently since social distancing measures were put in place in late March, as well as their views on health and wellbeing during this period; and
- A community group and organisation version that gauges how organisations operated during social distancing measures and challenges that may exist in recommencing meetings, activities and events.

Hard copies can also be collected from Council’s Customer Service Centres at Cohuna and Kerang, as well as the following locations:
- Koondrook Post Office
- Lake Charm Store
- Murrabit General Store
- Quambatook Community Resource Centre
Completed surveys can be returned by mail to PO Box 287, Kerang VIC 3579 or delivered to either of the venues mentioned above by 5pm Friday, 7 August.
“I encourage all residents and community groups to consider taking the time to complete this survey and play a role in the Gannawarra’s recovery from COVID-19,” Mayor Learmonth said.
