Lismore MP Janelle Saffin said she was pleased to see the gradual reopening of public facilities as COVID-19 restrictions ease

“However, I ask people to make the effort to observe social distancing and hygiene measures while accessing our much-loved libraries, art galleries and museums,” Ms Saffin said.

“This way we will play an important part in keeping our community safe and keeping our favourite places open.”
