The Governor has today released an Easter Message for the people of Queensland:

This Easter break will be very different from what we are used to – social isolation, separation of friends and, for some, children and grandchildren, uncertainty and grief…

The people of Queensland deserve gratitude and commendation for their discipline and grit in adversity. You have responded admirably to necessary constraints and we all play our part this Easter by staying at home.

Our frontline medical staff, and the entire health workforce, deserve unstinting praise for their utter dedication and professionalism in times of peril and risk to themselves.

The enduring Easter message is of hope and renewal. Buoyed by this spirit, we must focus on our conviction that the pandemic will end, and hope that will be sooner rather than later.

My fellow Queenslanders, you know that you have Kaye’s and my very best wishes in these difficult days. May this Easter be as happy and uplifting a time for you as it can be.

Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland
