Police urge restriction compliance

“Hang in there and remain in contact with family members.”

That’s the message from Officer-in-Charge of Longreach Police, Senior Sergeant Graham Seabrook, while urging locals to continue obeying the State Government’s Covid-19 restrictions.

With Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, announcing some restrictions would be eased from midnight tonight, Sgt Seabrook thanked community members for their cooperation and compliance and urged them to keep up the good work.

“Last weekend we only issued one infringement notice to a local man who failed to comply with the Chief Health Officer’s directions,” Sgt Seabrook said.

“Police are very happy with the overall response from locals and their willingness to comply with Covid-19 restrictions. Thank you for being understanding. Hang in there and remain in contact with family members.”

The Premier announced relaxation of some restrictions with a requirement to remain within a 50km radius of home and continuing to observe social distancing.

Going for a drive, having a picnic, visiting national parks, shopping for non-essential items, and riding a motorbike, jet-ski, or boat for recreation are among the permitted activities from tomorrow.
