SOMERSET Regional Council will meet next week to discuss the community impact of coronavirus.

The special meeting will be held on Wednesday, 25 March from 8.30am in the Simeon Lord Room at the Esk Library.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the meeting would focus on the health and well-being of the Somerset community.

“While the meeting will be open to the public, we encourage people to refrain from attending and follow advice from health experts,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Council has already taken proactive steps to decentralise its workforce, establishing a fully-functional office space at Somerset Civic Centre.

“All Youth Week, school holiday and library activities have been postponed until further notice, and staff are communicating closely with stakeholders involved in major events like the Somerset Art Beat Festival and The Brisbane Airshow.

“I thank the Somerset community for remaining calm during this difficult time, and also acknowledge the groups that have postponed their own events, doing the right thing by fellow residents.

“It is important that we all continue to take advice from state and federal authorities and keep personal hygiene and social distancing top of mind.”
