'On a knifes edge' - COVID in rural and remote NSW and how our sector is coping

Deputy Premier John Barilaro last week stated that the western region of NSW was on a ‘knife’s edge’ due to increasing cases of COVID. We are increasingly concerned for our members who are located in the area. Many have only just rebuilt their teams after losing them in last year's lockdown, and are being pushed financially, emotionally and physically. 

However, strong community spirit is bringing out the best in people, as they band together to protect vulnerable community members through vaccination, and focus their efforts on finding any positives they can in a challenging situation. CELA's regional early education specialist Narelle Myers and General Manager of Bourke & District Children's Services Prue Ritchie tells us what things are like for ECEC professionals and families in the area.
