What planning has Council done for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

Council's Business Continuity Crisis Management Team has been meeting regularly as a precautionary measure.

Business continuity planning involves developing a practical plan for how we prepare for, and continue to operate after an incident disrupts our daily business operations – such as a virus outbreak/epidemic such as COVID-19.

Council has plans to:

  • prepare for a disruption / crisis
  • manage a disruption / crisis
  • recover critical business functions
  • resume normal business operations.

There is a Master Plan for all of Council, as well as a Recovery Plan for each of the Directorates, which outlines essential services for each Branch in Council and what is needed for Council to resume services for the community.

There is no need to be alarmed, but we are preparing in case the situation changes locally.

What are our contingencies for support agencies that are also impacted?

Our business continuity planning ensures we identify key risk areas in our supply chain and other support agencies and provides ways to eliminate or minimise this risk.

What does it mean that the Local Recovery Group has been activated?

The Logan Local Recovery Group (LRG) has Stood Down as of Friday, November 13, 2020.

Throughout the year, the LRG worked through the short, medium and long-term activities in The City of Logan COVID-19 Local Recovery Plan (PDF 167 KB), with the transition of remaining activities into business as usual.

The group was activated in March 2020 to help coordinate community recovery.

There are four sub-groups (Human-Social, Economic, Infrastructure and Environment) of the LRG, which provide services that may involve effective recovery that requires a range of services operating in a co-ordinated and streamlined way.
