The councillor remarked that the entire range of local government services can be accessed electronically on the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC) and encouraged islanders to use "virtual channels that eliminate the need for in-person visits".

Capacity restrictions and health and safety measures will be respected at all times.
