COVID-19

coronavirus

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.

With COVID-19 continuing to impact staff numbers, it is affecting some Council services such as mowing, parks and tree services. Our crews have received a large volume of reports about trees or branches needing attention and we are getting through the backlog as quickly as we can. If you have reported it to Council via customer service or Send Snap Solve, we have your request in our system and will attend to it soon.

No essential services are impacted due to COVID-19 staff shortages and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

If you have COVID symptoms or are a close contact follow these 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.

    From Thursday 14 April 2022, Qld Health Directives changed. Vaccination status restrictions were removed from many settings including hospitality, venues, theatres, weddings and galleries. Vaccination and check-in requirements will continue for anyone visiting or working in vulnerable settings (hospitals, disability accommodation services and residential aged care) as well as for workers in high-risk settings including schools, childcare, prisons and airports.

    The only council service that is required to continue under the vaccine mandate is the Noosa Community Support, with all visitors and employees continuing to need to be vaccinated.

    Council will continue to act in accordance with the latest health advice and we will advise the community of any changes.
