Tough new Covid restrictions in Brisbane will limit the activities of Easter bunnies, as residents hope the city’s lockdown comes to an end today.
“We’re trying our hardest to make Easter a safe and healthy time for everyone,” says QLD Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. “But we need to be careful.”
The QLD state government has introduced new social distancing rules, altering the way Easter egg hunts are carried out.
“We’re restricting all Easter bunnies to leaving one Easter egg per four square metres,” says the Premier. “Simple measures like this can make a big difference.”
Brisbane residents involved in Easter egg hunts will also be required to wear disposable gloves and face masks.
“People can remove their face masks to eat the chocolate,” says the premier. “But we’re only allowing them to 10 seconds at a time to do this.”
A full list of Easter related social distancing rules is available on the QLD Department of Health website.
