What is reopening in Tenterfield?

TENTERFIELD residents will start to see a number of facilities starting to reopen following an easing of Covid-19 restrictions from June 1.

Tenterfield Shire Council mayor Peter Petty said the council will begin to reopen facilities to the community once again.

“After this long period isolation, it is wonderful that at last everything is slowly starting to re-open,” Cr Petty said.

“Our businesses have done it so hard for the past 12 months. We can hope and trust that things will start to return to normal, visitors will come and stay, and our economy can rebuild.”

Cr Petty said residents still need to exercise social distancing.

“I urge everyone to stay vigilant regarding social distancing, upload the COVIDSafe app to your mobile phone, and stay aware of the regulations with regard to gatherings.”
