How to support the local Brisbane hospitality scene during the coronavirus threat
UPDATE March 23, 2020: We told you we’d be regularly updating this, as the coronavirus situation is rapidly evolving. As of midday Monday March 23, the federal Government has forced the closure of all pubs, clubs, cinemas, casinos, nightclubs, indoor places of worship, gyms and indoor sporting venues. Restaurants and cafes will be allowed to operate, but only to offer takeaway and delivery services. Currently hotels can operate in an accommodation-only capacity, and supermarkets, convenience stores, banks, petrol stations, pharmacies, food delivery services, bottle shops, hairdressers, beauticians and freight and logistics services can continue to operate. COVID-19 is a serious virus, which means we need to take serious steps to overcome it. As you can see from the latest Government protocol, this usually comes at the expense of small businesses – especially our bars, cafes and restaurants. Our local hospitality heroes have already made significant changes in their operations in a bid to survive and now they’ve been forced to take more – many of which will be ceasing operation for the foreseeable future. Thankfully, many have switched to takeaway and delivery services to continue to feed their loyal customers and work through this unprecedented situation. There are a lot of announcements to sift through, so we are compiling (and regularly updating) a list of restaurants that you can still enjoy from home during the coronavirus outbreak.
