The health and safety of the community and our workers is our highest priority.  It’s important we do what we can to keep ourselves safe and minimise the spread during this difficult time.

If you have COVID symptoms

  • People who are symptomatic, and can't access a test, should stay at home. If their symptoms remain mild they should remain at home and follow the instructions on Qld Health's website.
  • People who are symptomatic and their condition worsens should seek medical assistance either through their GP, 13HEALTH or if it is an emergency through 000.

If you are a close contact

  • People who are close contacts or worried they have spent time with someone who is positive, and who can't get a PCR or RAT test, should stay at home and follow these instructions on Qld Health's website.

Here's how we can all help minimise the spread:

  • wear a mask when you go out,
  • stay out of crowded spaces
  • if you have any Covid like symptoms, stay at home.
