Council implements work from home arrangements during COVID-19
26 March 2020
Southern Downs Regional Council has implemented temporary work from home arrangements for a significant number of its workforce amid community health concerns and social distancing restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak.
From Friday 27 March, approved staff who have the capacity to undertake their duties remotely will work from home.
Many other local government agencies have also adopted similar work arrangements with their staff during the COVID-19 outbreak.
A Council spokesperson said that ‘business as usual’ will remain its key focus and that the temporary work arrangement will not impede its capacity to deliver essential services to the community.
Council continues to be guided by State and Federal Government advice and requirements in making decisions regarding its facilities and keeping the community and staff safe.
