The Mayor writes:

“…we have supported the State and Federal Governments efforts from the beginning of this pandemic. We strongly support the need to keep our community safe, based on advice from the Chief Medical Officer, however at this time the proposed changes have divided parts of our community, causing confusion and anxiety.”

“Small business and local industry play a significant role in our region’s economy and are the backbone of our community. They now face possible closures with the current plans preventing unvaccinated people to enter…”

“Please advise:

  • How mixed-category venues should be managed?..
  • How the mandate will be enforced?..
  • How long is the 17 December directive expected to be in place?
  • What new public health directives will be issued once Queensland reaches the 90% double vaccination target?..”
