Public Notice - COVID-19 -12 June 2020 - New CHO Directive
As of today, Friday 12 June 2020, Queensland communities have been removed from under the Biosecurity (Human Biosecurity Emergency) (Human Coronavirus with Pandemic Potential) (Emergency Requirements for Remote Communities) Determination 2020. This change has seen the introduction of Declared travel Zones (DTZ), that will allow residents to travel to and from the DTZ without the need for quarantining. What does this mean? Residents of Torres Shire can now travel to Cairns, Mareeba, Douglas, Tablelands and Carpentaria Shires for any reason and return to Torres Shire without any restrictions.
