As Queenslanders start to re-emerge from our isolation bubbles, a number of Redland City Council venues have reopened or are gearing to do so.
Mayor Karen Williams said Council had moved quickly to prepare venues to reopen following the State Government’s announcement of further easing of COVID-19 restrictions from noon, Monday 1 June.
“Essentially this has brought Stage 2 of the Queensland Government’s Roadmap to Easing COVID-19 Restrictions forward, and Council has worked quickly to put in place measures to reopen venues as quickly and safely as possible,” Cr Williams said.
“Additionally the State Government’s announcement means local restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs will be able to welcome more patrons and so now is the perfect time to support local businesses.
“While the recent State Government announcement is welcome news, I would encourage everyone to familiarise themselves with the updated restrictions on the Queensland Health website and ensure they continue to practice social distancing.”
