As 2021 dawned with the hope of a post-COVID world thanks to the vaccine, a new variant strain of the virus was detected in Australia.
When it comes to tackling the virus, Queenslanders have shown that a no-nonsense approach, including locking down the borders and complying with stay-at-home orders have proven effective in limiting the reach of the virus.
We recently had a positive detection in our wastewater system, proving that the virus is still around and has been in our community recently.
Continuing with our best hygiene practices and maintaining social distancing (staying 1.5m apart) is still important in preventing the spread with the detection of COVID-19.
