COVID-19 Special Update

New Zealand Border Update

Queensland's borders will open to New Zealand from 1am Saturday 12 December.

More New Zealand citizens call Queensland home than any other Australian state, and COVID has kept many of their families apart for months.

With Kiwis able to travel to Queensland from tomorrow, families can finally be reunited in time for Christmas.

Indoor Dancing Restrictions Easing

Restrictions are changing in Queensland from noon on Monday 14 December.

Indoor dancing will be allowed in all venues including pubs, clubs and nightclubs, subject to the one person per two metre rule.

Queenslanders have worked hard to stop the spread of COVID-19, which means we can safely get back to more of the activities Queenslanders enjoy and ease some restrictions on businesses.

All About Living at old Sandgate Fire Station

The former Sandgate Fire and Rescue Station will become the new home for All About Living, a not-for-profit organisation supporting the Sandgate area.

Since plans were announced to move operations of the Sandgate Fire and rescue station to the new Bracken Ridge complex, I have been determined to ensure the station and its land would remain in the service of Sandgate as a community asset.

That is why I am so proud to announce this great news for All About Living and the Sandgate community as a whole.

All About Living is a highly respected and valued provider of support services to elderly and disabled members of our community and their families.

Under the arrangement, All About Living will receive the land in freehold. The organisation’s plan is to immediately undertake fit-out works to the building, to facilitate its work supporting the aged and those with disabilities.

Their successful tender also outlines longer term plans for redevelopment to cater for even more services to the local community.

COVID-19 Reminder

I ask everyone to play their part in ensuring the health and safety of one another. Maintaining the recommended 1.5m between yourself and others is an essential part of this.  

Additionally, keeping good personal hygiene is a must. Wash your hands with soap regularly and try to steer clear from touching your face, shaking hands or giving hugs.

We need to take all advice seriously and look after the vulnerable in our community.
