COVID-19 Information

Queensland Government is providing the latest information for our state through a dedicated website:

The Queensland COVID-19 site offers a wealth of information, including:

  • Daily statistics
  • Updates to restrictions
  • Essential information on vaccinations, border closures, and quarantine
  • Advice for travelling in Australia
  • Tips for keeping you and your family healthy
  • Resources for businesses
  • Translated information (Auslan, international languages)

Getting your COVID-19 vaccination

South West Hospital and Health Service is running COVID-19 vaccination clinics across the Balonne Shire.

These clinics travel across the Shire. For the latest schedule, visit the SWHHS website.

Everyone aged over 16 years (plus anyone in a priority group) can currently get their COVID-19 vaccination.

Due to the high demand for COVID-19 vaccines in the South West, booking an appointment is highly recommended. Unfortuantely the SWHHS will not always have the capacity to accept walk-ins.

Vaccination Hotline: 1800 844 886

For Primary Producers

Border restrictions are posing a challenge to the rural sector, though the emergence of the COVID-19 Delta variant requires stronger risk mitigation measures to reduce its spread.

Where possible, agribusinesses are being asked to reconsider their plans to cross the border.

For those who must cross the border for essential work, a class exemption may be available.

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries can provide information for primary producers.
