Dear Businesses,

We continue to be encouraged by the flattening of the curve across Australia and the low rates of infection across the Sunshine Coast.  We hope that you are all coping, looking after yourselves and your families, and able to enjoy the sunshine, of course in line with restrictions.  
A brief update on the latest business relevant information is below:
