Homeless campers at Wilks Park have been spared, as the council moves on grey nomads following a NSW Public Health Order.
Caravan parks and camping grounds are now closed across the state following the health order, which commenced on Thursday.
Wagga mayor Greg Conkey said while the council was directing grey nomads to move on, those camped at Wilks Park with no permanent residence to go to were exempt.
"Travellers will no longer be able to use that facility, however exemptions and protections will be in place for people who have no other place of permanent residence," he said.
The coronavirus outbreak is set to be an especially challenging time for homeless and disadvantaged people in Wagga as charities manage shortages in supplies and volunteers.
Vinnies council president Peter Burgess said while the widespread financial insecurity meant the organisation was receiving fewer donations, their biggest issue was maintaining a workforce.
"We've got the resources at present ... but most of our vols are over 70," Mr Burgess said.
"Workforce is our biggest issue, getting people who are young, interested and have time to assist us because a lot of our regular people are in that age group, and some of them have health problems and they just can't work because they don't want to put themselves in a vulnerable position."
Mr Burgess said it was difficult as well for disadvantaged people, especially those who were homeless, to maintain the social distancing practices the wider community have been learning to adopt over recent weeks.
"I'm not even sure some of them are aware of the risk," he said.
"The people who are homeless are often people with disabilities, either physical or intellectual, they're often not people who are fully in contact with what's going on in the world so they struggle a lot and whether they can keep social distance, God only knows."
Mr Burgess said he was encouraging younger people to step up to assist support efforts for the disadvantaged by visiting vinnies.org.au and getting involved.
He said people looking for assistance with essential items could call them on 6921 7337 to discuss what they need and how to get it while limiting physical interaction.
"We then interview people, we either get them to come in (to Micah Hub) and we prepare a bundle for them and give it to them, with food or stuff like that, or what we're going to start doing in a week or so ... is get people to give us their address and then two or three times a week we'll get people to go out and leave stuff on the front doorstep," he said.
