AN IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 FROM THE QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT
SUNDAY SERVICES TO GO AHEAD THIS WEEKEND
In response to recent positive COVID-19 cases, the Queensland Government have placed a range of measures across greater Brisbane, Ipswich and surrounds to protect the local community.
- Gatherings in private homes and public spaces will be restricted to a maximum of 10 people.
- Residential aged care and disability accommodation facilities have restrictions on visitors and residents leaving the facility.
- Hospitals have been asked to restrict visitors as soon as possible.
- Hospital emergency departments, aged care facilities and disability accommodation facilities will use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including face masks and gloves to treat all patients and residents.
The Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk advised within this mornings press conference that she was confident in the commercial and community organisations that hold COVIDSafe Plans.
As we operate under the Places of Worship Industry Plan we can assure all our Bridgeman community that services will go ahead this Sunday following our COVIDSafe guidelines yet we want to encourage those who may have attended the government advised locations not to attend services this weekend for the safety of others. These locations can be found under the Queensland Health Contact Tracing Alert website.
For those who may feel uncomfortable attending services this weekend we want to assure people that they are most welcome to join us online via bridgeman.live, Facebook or YouTube if they feel safer this way.
For those choosing to attend a service this weekend we want to implore everyone to follow social distancing protocols and contact tracing requirements.
We encourage all our congregation to download the COVIDSafe app when out in the community and especially when attending services here at Bridgeman. This can be downloaded here.
Further information can be found via the Australian Government Health Website.
