Chief Executive COVID-19 Update: 17 January

Message from the Chief Executive

Queensland zone changes
Due to reduced exposure risk and low community transmission, the Local Government Areas of Greater Brisbane (Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Logan, and Ipswich) have now been declared orange zones.

The updated orange zone listing overrides the previous classification as a red zone.

Employees who have been in Greater Brisbane and returned since 30 December must:

  1. Get tested (if you have not already done so since returning).
  2. Isolate until you receive a negative result. Do not attend work.
  3. Contact your manager.
  4. Monitor for symptoms in the following two weeks post-exposure and get tested again (and isolate until the result is known) if symptoms develop.

You can return to work when you receive a negative result if you have no symptoms.

Updated advice for screening teams

Travel from Greater Brisbane
Anyone who has been or is currently in Greater Brisbane wanting to travel to Victoria can now apply for a permit.

All managers are requested to share these updates with their teams and discuss at stand-ups and handovers. Please print a copy and display it in communication books and on employee noticeboards.

As advice and information evolve, please consult the latest updates and visit the Department of Health and Human Services and Monash Health COVID-19 website for employees regularly for the latest.
