Help is available for people who have no other means of support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A Community Recovery Hotline is available by the Queensland Government (Department of Communities) to assist people who have been quarantined at home by a medical professional, Queensland Health or through government direction and have no other way of support. Community Recovery Hotline staff will work with partner organisations to arrange non-contact delivery of essential food and medication and other assistance.
The Community Recovery Hotline can be contacted on 1800 173 349.
Queenslanders who require health advice or information while in quarantine or self-isolation should continue to call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) or visit the Queensland Health website.
If you need information about the Australian Government’s support for people impacted by COVID-19, including Economic Support Payments and allowances for people who are in self-quarantine and can’t work, visit the Services Australia website or call 132 468.
