The Queensland Government’s announcement about the Public Health orders expected to take effect on 17 December 2021 has caused some angst for businesses owners and employees across the Shire.

Vaccination rates are particularly low among people living north of the Daintree River, and some have expressed concerns about the impact the health orders will have on their ability to keep working, and for businesses to remain operating without access to staff.

Queensland Health has arranged to run a COVID Information Session in Diwan which is open to all residents. They will endeavour to answer as many questions as they can, whether it’s about potential future lockdowns or information about the safety and/or efficacy of vaccinations available.

Queensland Health Representatives attending include:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Nursing Director
  • A Senior Epidemiologist
  • A Staff Specialist Physician
  • Cow Bay, Director of Nursing

The Douglas Economic Recovery Group will also be attending, and business owners and employees will have an opportunity to explain what challenges they face in relation to the Health Orders.

RSVPs Requested Please: Heritage Lodge will need to set up appropriate seating and will be providing tea/coffee and light snacks.

When: 4pm to 5pm, Tuesday 30 November 2021
Where: Heritage Lodge, 96 Turpentine Road, Diwan.

Please RSVP to Gaye Scott (gaye.scottdouglas.qld.govau) or call Gaye on 0418 793 009 for more information about the session.
