Queensland Corona tally reach to 1038

Online Desk: The premier of Queensland Ms Palaszczuk said she was hopeful at seeing business return to normal but the situation needed to be taken ‘One step at a time “. According to her , while coronavirus outbreak in NSW remain active, it will be at least June before Queensland’s border, restaurants and cafes re-open .

There are 13 declared ‘hotspots’ throughout New South Wales , including Sydney, and anyone who has traveled there must self-quarantine for 14 days upon entering Queensland.

Look, when we’ve got kids back at school, we’ve got parents being able to work more productively at home, it sends a signal we can move to the next stages and get people back into the workforce

“I think everyone can see what’s happening in the US and what’s happening in Europe. They have had huge numbers of tragic deaths.” she added “I think people in Australia understand we are actually living in the lucky country and we have put in lots of measures in place but we can’t unravel everything too quickly.”

June has been flagged as a possible reopening date for cafes and restaurants.
“Once we see those hotspots clear of community transmission, that is when I think there will be reason to look at that,” the Premier said.
“We will review our border restrictions at the end of every month,” Ms Palaszczuk.
Ms Palaszczuk said she would soon meet with delegates from the hospitality industry to discuss their return.
Schools will start progressively re-opening from next week with the aim of having all students back to their desks before the end of the month.
Students in Kindergarten, prep and year 1, as well as students in years 11 and 12, will return to their classrooms from May 11, Ms Palaszczuk.
Schools are expected to be fully operational by May 25 and it’s yet another step towards easing restrictions imposed to stymie the spread of COVID-19.
Queensland has recorded three more coronavirus cases to take the state’s tally to 1038
