Parking in central Horsham will be free until at least June 30.
Horsham Rural City Council Chief Executive Officer Sunil Bhalla said covers would be placed over meters from today.
“This measure acknowledges that many businesses are adjusting their business model to incorporate deliveries and pick up services,” Mr Bhalla said.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to complete their essential shopping and get home again,” he said.

Mr Bhalla said motorists still needed to respect the time limits.
Fines may also be issued if drivers misuse disabled parking bays and no-standing zones.
“Parking legally is important to ensure traffic can flow smoothly and safely, as well as allow emergency and other critical services to pull over when they need to," Mr Bhalla said.
