#COVID-19 Scenic Rim and Logan police to enforce social distancing regulations

The Queensland Police Service has announced it is providing ongoing support to Queensland Health as part of a co-ordinated whole of government response to the COVID-19 situation.

The community is being reminded to adhere to social distancing principles and new restrictions in relation to indoor venues.

Police said a multi-agency taskforce operating under Task Force Sierra Linnet would ensure compliance with the new Chief Health Officer directions now in place for all pubs, registered and licensed clubs, gyms and indoor sporting venues across Logan and the Scenic Rim.

They said the measures were aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 and ensuring overall public health and safety.

Police have certain powers under the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld) to ensure compliance with the intent of the legislation, and penalty provisions apply.
