LDMG amends status in line with relaxation of restrictions


The South Burnett Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) held its fortnightly meeting on Tuesday 2 June 2020

They reviewed the accelerated introduction of Stage 2 of the Queensland Government’s Roadmap to Recovery and subsequent additional relaxation of restrictions.

South Burnett LDMG Chair Cr Roz Frohloff has advised that as a result of the amendment to restrictions, the LDMG has resolved to scale down its operations and reduce its status back to ‘Alert’.

“Key agencies within the LDMG will continue to meet on a regular basis to ensure that the group remains aware and prepared should there be any further cases of COVID-19 within the South Burnett,” Cr Frohloff said.

“In addition, the Human & Social and Economic Sub Group will remain engaged, with the South Burnett Local Disaster Recovery Group to officially move to ‘Lean Forward’, and continue to assist with the coordination and communications for community recovery as required.”

The group acknowledges, like all businesses, that agencies have now commenced a path to recovery transition, and will look to return all services as soon as possible in line with the Chief Health Officer’s protocols and limitations.

Cr Frohloff concluded with, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the agencies involved with this latest LDMG operation, and in particular, thank the community for their patience and cooperation during these trying times.”

Members of the community are encouraged to keep informed on the latest COVID-19 health advice on the QLD Health 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.
