Police congratulate locals for compliance

TABLELANDERS have been congratulated by local police for how they have complied with the Queensland Government’s Covid mandate and requirements.


Acting Inspector Rob Campbell said Tablelands businesses and community were to be congratulated for adopting the requirements, demonstrated through their compliance with directions, or by modifying their practices to play their part in protecting each other. 

He said the Tablelands Patrol Group police were out in the community, conducting compliance checks on individuals and businesses, ensuring adherence to the Chief Health Officer’s (CHO) directions. 

“Police are taking an educational and commonsense approach to ensure compliance, however we will not hesitate to take enforcement action when necessary and will issue fines for blatant disregarding of the CHO directions,” Acting Insp Campbell said. 

“With the highly contagious Omicron variant of Covid spreading throughout Queensland, now is the time to remain vigilant and adherence to the safety precautions. 

“What is known about Covid is that is carried and spread by people with social gatherings, crowds, parties providing ideal opportunities for the virus to spread. 

“The Chief Health Officer’s directions have been put in place to maintain safer social and health protocols including the wearing of masks and limiting social interactions at various establishments.”
