On Friday 12 June 2020, Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) and Dubbo Stock and Station Agents (DSSA) announced that restrictions at Dubbo Regional Livestock Markets (DRLM) would be lifted further for the Friday 19 June 2020 Store Sale.
Genuine re-stockers and primary producer vendors will be able to inspect livestock prior to auction and can now stay onsite during the sale.
This is phase one of easing the restrictions for essential users only at DRLM. This easing of restrictions includes risk control measures to best ensure the safety of all users and minimise risk of any outbreak that would significantly affect such an important facility for our national food supply and regional economic output.
Social distancing of 1.5 metres will be reinforced and all genuine users must preregister their intent to enter with their preferred agent before 12pm, Thursday 18 June 2020, and sign a COVID-19 declaration on entry.
DRLM remains closed to the general public, and any person not preregistered and inducted will be refused entry.
Following Friday’s Store Sale, Council and DSSA will review risk management practices and social distancing in regards to lifting restrictions at regular fat sales, the first of which would be Monday 22 June 2020.
