Mount Isa City Council said it has closed off all parks with play equipment until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This includes the Family Fun Park, Skate Park, Playway Park, Quota Park, and Ron McCullough Park.
Other parks will remain open, but there are limits placed on gathered groups in PT sessions (must have less than 10 people) and all must abide by social distancing guidelines.
Council said the changes are in response to the latest round of Australian Government social distancing enforcement measures that came into effect this week.
"This decision has been made to ensure the health of all patrons and the wider community is not compromised during the current pandemic," they said.
Council will also temporarily close the Waste Management Facility Container Exchange platform at close of business on Sunday, March 29.
Council said wait times can also be expected to increase notably for customer's requesting cash rebates as the sorting facilities are now required to be sterilised between processes.
They said people wanting containers processed before platform closure attain a Scheme ID number through the Containers for Change website which will allow the rebate to be paid directly to a bank account, so they may simply drop their containers where instructed and leave the WMF with unnecessary interaction.
