The community is being reminded to adhere to social distancing principles and new restrictions in relation to indoor venues.
The Queensland Police Service (QPS) is providing ongoing support to Queensland Health as part of a co-ordinated whole of government response to the COVID-19 situation.
A multi-agency taskforce operating under Task Force Sierra Linnet will ensure compliance with the new Chief Health Officer directions now in place for all pubs, registered and licensed clubs, gyms, indoor sporting venues, casinos and night clubs.
These measures are aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 and ensuring overall public health and safety.
Police have certain powers under the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld) to ensure compliance with the intent of the legislation, and penalty provisions apply.
