The Taree Airport terminal is among the latest to close in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cancellation of flights by Air Pelican on Thursday, March 26 has resulted in a closure of the terminal, however the airport does remain open for general aviation and car hire agencies.
Also closed are council operated showgrounds, council owned and managed free camping areas, parks, playgrounds, visitor information centres, libraries and customer service centres.
"We will continue to monitor the situation locally and heed the advice and updates from both State and Federal Governments, as well as the Office of Local Government, as the situation progresses," MidCoast Council's general manager, Adrian Panuccio said.
Mr Panuccio reminded the community that while council facilities have closed, the customer service team remain active and available for assistance over the phone.
"Members of the community will be able to continue to do business with us via phone, email and online services and we have plenty of staff on hand to assist and talk you through any queries you may have."
Other closures and suspensions of council services include:
- all council owned pools, including the YMCA operated facilities in Taree, Forster and Wingham
- the Manning Entertainment Centre
- the Manning Regional Art Gallery
- council owned halls and facilities are no longer available to hire
- the annual bulky waste collections have also been suspended
Essential services such as water provision, sewer services, road maintenance and rubbish collection will continue.
The situation is changing rapidly and council encourages everyone in the community to stay up to date by visiting www.midcoast.nsw.gov.au, and by following the council Facebook page.
