Scenic Rim Regional Council and novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
On Monday 1 June, Scenic Rim Local Disaster Management Group moved to ALERT status, in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
During this unprecedented time, the health, safety and wellbeing of employees, residents, ratepayers and our broader communities is of utmost importance. We urge you to protect yourselves by staying at home, using common sense, remaining calm and please cooperate with the advice of health authorities.
We will continue to monitor the advice being provided by the Chief Health Officers from the Australian and Queensland Governments and will take every precaution necessary to assist the region in dealing with the effects of COVID-19.
On 22 August 2020, the Queensland Government announced the Scenic Rim region as one of many local government areas with additional restriction on gatherings at home or in public places. This does not impact busineses with a COVID Safe Plan, and is a precautionary measure due to the proximity of our region to other local government areas where COVID-19 cases have been identified.
We are encouraging our community members to check Queensland Health's list of venues from the latest contact tracing in neighbouring local government areas, and if they feel unwell or have any symptoms to contact their GP or Queensland Health.
Roadmap to Easing Restrictions
The Australian Government has released a COVIDSafe app, which speeds up contacting people exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19). This helps support and protect you, your friends and family. Please read the content on this page before downloading.
