Council is continuing to work closely with the Queensland and Australian governments to plan, prepare, respond and recover from the impacts of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Council's priority is protecting the health and well-being of the community, our staff and customers. Council's response to the virus during the weeks and months ahead will continue to operate in accordance with the latest updates from lead agency, Queensland Health.
Helping to slow the spread of the virus and reduce peak demand on health facilities is the key goal. You can download the COVIDSafe app, which will help slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community.
The Queensland Government has released a Roadmap to easing restrictions (stage 1).
This roadmap outlines a staged approach to giving Queenslanders more freedom to travel, participate in more activities and attend more gatherings. You can also read the Queensland Government's FAQs about easing restrictions.
Council is working to reopen local facilities where it is safe and practical. We will provide updates as decisions about reopening are made. The current stage of conditions (maximum 10 people in some spaces) makes it impractical to open some facilities and reopening will occur in stages. Museums and other heritage sites and centres remain closed. Check the websites of individual museums for further information.
While council has increased cleaning of many facilities, being COVIDSafe is everyone's responsibility. We remind residents and visitors to observe social distancing requirements when using public spaces which includes:
- Stay home if you are sick
- Keep 1.5 metres away from others
- Limit outdoor gatherings to 10 people
- Avoid peak times and overcrowded areas
- Wash or disinfect hands regularly
- Avoid touching high use areas.
