Zero cases of coronavirus overnight as QLD children go back to school

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk this morning announced QLD has once again recorded no new cases of coronavirus, as more than 600,000 students return to classrooms.

 

Declaring “we are not out of the woods yet” Ms Palaszczuk has sent out a stern message to the students, teachers and anyone working within the school environment returning back to schools today that if you are sick to stay at home.

Attendance rates for the last two weeks has been strong with preps, year 1’s along with years 11 and 12 as they welcome the rest of the students in grades from year 2 to 10.

The QLD Premier says it’s “wonderful” to see the whole school community back together.

“I want to thank all the school communities for getting the schools prepared, all the effort that’s gone in, the cleaning and the COVID-19 safe plans and the rapid response plans are in place if there was to be an outbreak,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

Meantime the Premier has confirmed that the number of patrons allowed in restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs could be increased.

Stage two of the recovery road map has flagged 20 customers at a time from June 13, but that could be boosted to 50.
