City of Gold Coast has this afternoon shut Council carparks at the Spit.
Chair of the Local Disaster Management Group and Mayor, Tom Tate said he was left with no choice after people continued to gather in groups there today.
“People are just not listening so we have taken this measure to discourage visitors,” he said.
“The message is clear. We can no longer be gathering in groups larger than two and we should only be out for essential activities and exercise.
“A lazy day at the Spit should not be on the cards right now.
“Staying home is the best way to keep us all safe.”
