As restrictions to help reduce the potential impact of coronavirus take hold, events and facilities around the region are having to adapt and take stock.
Murrumbidgee Council has moved to shut down a number of facilities to remain in line with restrictions imposed by the federal and state government, with the council closing the swimming pools in Darlington Point and Coleambally until further notice, with the community gym in Coleambally also shut down.
Further closures of council facilities and changes to council events due to run - including citizenship ceremonies, seniors functions and a trip to Griffith as part of Youth Week celebrations - were on the agenda of Murrumbidgee Council's March meeting held on Tuesday, with any decision made coming after The Observer's print deadline.
It is not just council facilities which have been forced to adjust, with events in the region also having to weigh up their options as to whether they go ahead with events or not.
The Taste Coleambally Food and Farm Festival, due to run over October 23 to 25, has yet to make a decision as to whether the event will run as planned, according to Festival coordinator Catherine DeMamiel.
Ms DeMamiel said preliminary discussion emails have been circulated among the festival organisers, but a decision as to whether the festival will go on as planned in October has not been made.
"We haven't made a decision," Ms DeMamiel said.
"We're having a meeting early next week."
Ms DeMamiel said as the event is seven months away, it is difficult to know what the situation will look like but if the festival does need to be shifted, it is likely to be just postponed as opposed to cancelled outright.
"Hopefully people will be busting out of the seams to go out [in October]," Ms DeMamiel said.
Darlington Point's Sunshine Club also had to cancel plans for their 60th anniversary, which was scheduled for March 21, while a dance day at the Coleambally Community Club penciled in for March 22 was postponed.
Coleambally's Catholic debutante ball, originally scheduled for May 9, has also been postponed to a future date, while Anzac Day ceremonies across the region have been cancelled after a directive was handed down from RSL NSW.
The Darlington Point Bunyip Festival and the opening of the Waddi Community Cultural Garden and Regional Hertiage Centre has also been called off from their original dates of June 15 and 16.
