The chaos of COVID-19 has turned us into health conscious housebound hermits who are avid supporters of cleanliness and experts on social distancing. After many weeks indoors, this weekend gives a small opportunity to open the shutters and step outside as the government takes the first step in relaxing restrictions across the state.
So what does this mean for us? It means you can take a walk in the beautiful Bunya Mountains National Park, you can have a picnic with your family at one of our region’s great parks (BYO picnic) or you can grab your bike and ride along the Kingaroy to Kilkivan Rail Trail or Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
Please remember that social distancing guidelines apply outdoors as well as in.
- Stay 1.5 metres from other people.
- Wash your hands after touching surfaces like gates, fences, and door handles.
- Cover coughs and sneezes.
- Avoid other people when possible, and don’t gather in large groups.
- Don’t sit at picnic tables if you can’t effectively sanitize them first.
- Remember that there is no sit-down service in restaurants at the moment, but you can always enjoy takeaway.
Travelling with family and friends who are not part of your immediate household is not allowed and you must only travel within 50km of your home.
