Where to go for assistance during COVID-19?
New brochure to assist residents with information on ‘where they can get assistance’ during these unprecedented times.
South Burnett Regional Council Mayor Cr Brett Otto is pleased to advise that Council, through the Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) Human & Social and Economic Sub Group, has produced a brochure to assist South Burnett residents, especially our rural and remote community members, with information on ‘where they can get assistance’ during these unprecedented times.
Mayor Otto explained, “The Community Relief and Support Agencies in the South Burnett brochure specifically identifies groups, organisations and businesses available in the South Burnett who can provide assistance to our community members who may be experiencing extraordinary challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“There are many organisations located in the South Burnett that are dedicated to providing support to people when they need it, with many of their usual services being adapted to suit the COVID-19 restrictions.”
“I urge residents to keep an eye out for the vivid yellow brochure, themed in line with ‘Ray of Sunshine South Burnett’, which will be mailed to all South Burnett residents,” Mayor Otto said.
Members of the community are encouraged to keep informed on the latest COVID-19 health advice on QLD Health's website, phoning 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) or visiting Council’s website - ‘COVID-19’ page or Council’s Facebook page for further information.
South Burnett Regional Council reminds residents to follow the Queensland Government messaging: If you are sick, stay home; if you're feeling unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, you should contact your doctor about being tested; practice social distancing; continue good hygiene practices.
