To date there are no positive COVID-19 cases in the Maranoa area.
At the meeting, it was agreed that the Group move from the Alert stage to Lean Forward due to the increase in the number of overall COVID-19 cases in Australia and the new Australian and Queensland Government restrictions.
Under the Lean Forward stage, the LDMG will now be meeting on a regular basis, with the next meeting scheduled next week on Wednesday, 1 April 2020. In the meantime, members of the relevant agencies will continue monitoring the situation, and any further advice from the Australian and Queensland Governments.
The Group has been in contact with supermarkets, fuel suppliers and pharmacies across the region to monitor current stock and assess availability and continuity of supplies.
The LDMG and Council will continue to communicate with the community on further impacts.
