COVID-19 Recovery and Gympie Regional Council

Council's response and recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic operates in accordance with the lead agency, Queensland Health. The Queensland Government has released a  Roadmap to Easing Restrictions, which outlines a staged approach to relaxing restrictions within Queensland. 

We all need to play our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19. For information about Public Health Directions and COVID Safe measures, refer to the Queensland Government website.

We can also help our community and local businesses to recover. Gympie Regional Council is working with key stakeholders in the business and community sectors to make sure we have a coordinated approach to bouncing back from COVID-19 and building our resilience for future events.
