Care Army underway

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has made an announcement to her Facebook page today regarding a new initiative called the Care Army.

“During times of crisis, Queensland’s community spirit always shines through, as it did when the Mud Army went into action after the 2011 flood,” she said.

“Now we want the Care Army to rally around our seniors and make sure they’re ok during the Coronavirus pandemic – because the best place for them right now is in their home.

“The Care Army will operate a little differently because of health and safety restrictions – the spirit and effect remain the same.”

To volunteer to be part of the Care Army, call the hotline: 1800 173 349.

The number will link seniors and other vulnerable Queenslanders to essential services and support.


Public gatherings, excluding household members, have been reduced to a maximum of two people, as reported by the Australian Government.

Closure directions have recently been put in place for swimming pools including public pools and pools in shared facilities such as hotels and apartments.

This does not include pools in private residential dwellings.

Stay at home unless for: Shopping for what you need – food and necessary supplies, medical or health care needs, including compassionate requirements, exercise in compliance with the public gathering requirements, work and study if you can’t work or learn remotely
