Welcome to our Lane Cove Local News week in review, where we tell you what has happened over the last seven days in Lane Cove.
This week, the big news is that Bluey is coming to The Canopy as part of Lane Cove’s Christmas in Lane Cove. The bad news is that the event has sold out.

Recent Positive Cases in Lane Cove Council Area
There have been 11 positive COVID19 cases since 1 November 2021.
COVID-19 cases and tests by local government area as at 8 pm 23/11/2021 Last 4 Weeks Data
|Cases*||Total tests||Test rate (per 1000)|
The tables show the location of residence by Local Government Area (LGA) or local health district (LHD) of locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the last four weeks. It is based on the date the person first developed symptoms. When no date of symptom onset is available (it is either under investigation by public health staff or the person tested positive without showing symptoms), the date of the positive test is used. Infections are not always acquired in the place of residence as people often travel outside their area for many reasons (e.g. work, school and shopping). Cases without an NSW residential address and people who were exposed interstate or overseas are not shown. Case counts may vary over time due to ongoing investigations and case reviews.*Includes all locally acquired cases (known and unknown source)
Active Cases in Lane Cove Council Area
The data below the number of active cases (active cases are cases where a person is in isolation and is being managed by NSW Health). Note NSW has changed the way it is reporting cases – see notes below.
Lane Cove has 91.9% of its eligible vaccination double jabbed. It looks like we will not make the 95% as vaccination rates have slowed significantly.
- Moderna (Spikevax) – for 12 years+ from pharmacies
- Pfizer (Comirnaty) – for 12 years+ from pharmacies, GPs, and NSW Health vaccination clinics
- AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) – for 18 years+ from pharmacies, GPs, and NSW Health vaccination clinics.
NSW Health has now published Vaccination rates by LGA. Link to stats here.
The official vaccine booking link is here.

Incidents and Accidents
On Friday, 19 November 2021, a motorcyclist was involved in a single-vehicle accident in Riverview. Ambulance crew were sent by helicopter, and the closest place to land was on the Riverview College Oval.
On 21 November (a rainy night), there was another accident on the Mowbray Road bend.
In the Cove is now nine years old, and since we have been around, we have constantly received complaints about the number of accidents on Mowbray Road Lane Cove North. There is a bend in the road near an unoccupied site that used to be a Caltex Service Station, and it is an accident hotspot.
Mowbray Road forms the boundary between Lane Cove Council and Willougby City Council. Residents on the Mowbray Road Public School side have received a letter from Willougby City Council advising roadworks will be taking place in January 2022. Read More Here.
