Mount Isa Mayor Joyce McCulloch has given a Council update as the Australia-wide restrictions on non-essential gatherings come into place.
"Council has cancelled all community events and Splashez Swimming Pool has removed seating and closed some of the toilets due to additional cleaning requirements," Cr McCulloch said.
"Council has closed the dining options at the Outback at Isa cafe and we will enforce social distancing at our libraries to keep it open until further notice."
Cr McCulloch said residential rates notices were due for release at the end of the month and Council was legally obliged to issue them.
"However a time extension will be put into place and interest will be removed to reduce financial stress during these uncertain times," she said.
"Council will also be putting road closure signs on the highway to alert of travel restrictions to the Northern Territory, Burke Shire and Doomadgee.
"I also urge you to purchase only the products you need and this will ensure others do not miss out on essential items and be mindful and respectful of staff and we must also be mindful of the needs of Camooweal and our cattle properties as well."
Cr McCulloch urged people to look out for elderly and others in the community that may need help.
She said Council had produced sheets which can be printed out to put messages on and deliver to mailboxes of neighbours and others in the community who need your help.
She also urged people to use social media wisely and to keep people informed.
She said Queensland Health remained the lead agency on COVID-19 and they could be contacted by contacting 1300 HEALTH.
