After some earlier confusion in social media comments about whether the South Burnett would be affected by the new restrictions, it was reaffirmed on Saturday afternoon that it is the WHOLE Darling Health Service Region.

*** UPDATE: For anyone who is still confused by the attached image. The term "Local Government Area" means "Council". So, yes, when Queensland Health says the South Burnett local government area, it does mean all the towns in the South Burnett. And the Toowoomba local government area includes Yarraman. Cherbourg local government area means Cherbourg. ***
