Gympie Regional Council and COVID-19

Gympie Regional Council is monitoring developments relating to Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) daily and assessing any potential impact on council services and events.

No core services at this stage have been impacted and we aim to maintain our current level of service to residents and businesses during this period. Should this change, we will notify residents immediately

We take advice on all public health matters from the state and federal health departments.

Council Services

Gympie Regional Council’s service to the community around key infrastructure, waste management and water will continue as normal. We will update you if this changes.

A report was presented to Council at a Special Meeting on Tuesday, 24 March 2020, updating Councillors of the organisation’s adaptability during this time.

The report was noted. 

We would like to acknowledge our staff and the wider community for their cooperation and understanding in these uncertain times.
