Noosa Mayor Clare Stewart said residents and business operators need to remain vigilant, in the wake of current restrictions placed on Greater Brisbane and across Queensland.
“Noosa is still open for business, but it’s important we all follow the Chief Health Officer’s latest requirements for the state,” she said.
“Masks are now mandatory when entering any hospitality venue or eatery or on public transport, so I encourage all visitors and residents to follow the new restrictions.
“Obviously the Brisbane lockdown will have an impact on our shire, as we head into Easter, but if we do the right thing over the next few days, hopefully we can get through the Easter break unscathed,” Cr Stewart said.
“If you are travelling from Brisbane to Noosa, please don’t until the lockdown is lifted.
“We need everyone to cooperate,” she said.
“It’s been tough for many of our operators and while Noosa is not included in the Greater Brisbane lockdown, it’s important we all stay vigilant and keep up the social distancing,” she said.
“As the Premier said this is a highly contagious strain of the virus and if you have any symptoms, no matter how mild, go and get a test. It’s quick and painless.”
