Covid Community Care Update

We’ve had more exposure sites in the Shire of Dardanup listed by the Health Department. Please visit the Healthy WA website to stay up-dated.

Councillors and Staff are continuing to work hard at ensuring the Shire of Dardanup not only meets all of its obligations with regard to State Government mandates related to containment of Covid-19 but is continuing with extensive planning to reduce the potential for any interruptions to the level of service we are able to provide our community and ensure our business continuity.

This process is managed by our Incident Management Team which is currently meeting weekly and is lead by CEO André Schönfeldt and Shire President Mick Bennett.

With community transmission increasing and opening of our State border imminent, the Shire of Dardanup is encouraging residents with enquiries to consider phoning us rather than visiting our Administration Centre or Dardanup Office.

In addition, where possible, we’ll be offering options for online meetings via Zoom rather than in-person.

Dardanup Shire President Mick Bennett said the health and safety of staff and the community was currently the Number One priority and encouraged anyone needing advice or assistance to phone one of our friendly Customer Service Assistants on 9724 0000 or access the below support services.


If the COVID-19 health crisis is causing you particular stress or anxiety, or if you are beginning to feel overwhelmed, it’s important to reach out for help.

The State and Federal Governments have both launched new programs dedicated to supporting our community through this difficult time. Please visit the below links for expert guidance.
