COVID-19 resources, guidelines and templates

In this section, we provide information, tools, resources, and templates to help you keep your organisation operating and delivering services while protecting the health and wellbeing of staff, clients and the community.

Business continuity planning

Your business continuity plan should contain all the information you need to prepare your organisation to manage disruptions and get your organisation running again after an incident or crisis.

It should include a business impact analysis and an incident response plan, with plan activation, incident response team, roles and responsibilities, communications and contact list.

If you don’t already have a formal business continuity plan in place, or you need to update it, visit the Queensland Government’s Business continuity planning hub for more information on what to include.

  • What if an employee wants to stay at home as a precaution?
  • What if an employer wants their staff to stay home?
  • What about casual employees and independent contractors?

Mental health

Taking care of mental health is as important to recovery as other health and economic initiatives.
