DFES Facebook page says: “The Department of Communities has set up an evacuation centre at Brown Park Recreation Complex on Amherst Road, near the intersection of Salisbury Road, in Swan View.”

“People who have been personally directed to self-isolate or quarantine due to COVID-19, and anyone in a region subject to lockdown restrictions, should find alternative suitable premises and wear a mask.”

“If this is not possible, proceed to the evacuation centre and identify yourself to centre staff immediately on arrival.”

“Please take any essential items such as medications and identification to the evacuation centre.”

“Pets (except recognised assistance animals) are not allowed inside evacuation centres for health and safety reasons, so you should make alternative arrangements for them. If this is not possible, please still proceed to the evacuation centre with your pets and await further advice.”
