Our COVID Response

DBCYP Service Delivery changes – effective from 4pm Friday 27th August. The DBCYP office and Bean Seen are OPEN and are following the Queensland Government regulations.

We remain committed to implementing the necessary COVID Safe measures in order to keep our team of employees, volunteers, and importantly, our clients and community safe.

What is the Government saying?

With the easing of the South-East Queensland lockdown on Friday 27th August, some restrictions will continue to remain in place for the Moreton Bay region and are applicable to DBCYP services:

  • Social distancing: In indoor spaces, you must follow the 1 person per 2m2.
  • Face masks: You must carry a face mask with you at all times when you leave home, unless you have a lawful reason not to. You must wear a mask in indoor spaces (including workplaces, but not your own home) unless it is unsafe or you can stay 1.5m apart from other people.

Please keep up to date with the current contact tracing alerts for the Moreton Bay region here.

The importance of self-care during the pandemic

Self-care is often the first thing that gets sacrificed when life is busy and stressful, and people often think that taking time for themselves seems indulgent. But looking after your own wellbeing will help you get through this challenging time, and will help you to better care for others.

Amidst the confusion and constant stream of information due to COVID-19, practicing self-care can help you focus, make decisions and stay healthy.

See the Black Dog Institute or Beyond Blue for helpful ways to stay on top of your physical and mental health.
