As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, State and Territory health authorities have required some businesses to collect personal information from their patrons as a condition of re-opening. This requirement is at the direction of the Chief Health Officer in accordance with emergency powers arising from the declared public health emergency under the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld).
Further information in relation to this power can be viewed here.
In line with the current restrictions, Council’s libraries and community centres are employing a range of measures to help keep the community safe during the Covid-19 pandemic while ensuring its community continues to share the benefit of access to services. Some of these measures include the following requirements:
- Check in with the CheckInQLD app (or check in manually with staff)
- Wear your face mask
- Maintain physical distancing
- Practice good hand hygiene
These measures are in accordance with the QLD public health direction, to which Council will continue to adhere.
