Greetings Music Lovers,
Firstly - about the Qld Gov't Vaccination restrictions
From Friday 17 December 2021, entry to many Queensland locations and businesses will be restricted to patrons who are fully vaccinated (double dose).
Activities such as going to Live Music venues are defined by Qld Gov as not essential to meet the basic needs of the unvaccinated.
We are living in unprecedented times and it's going to make things difficult for TML and our volunteers with unwelcome tensions at the door and could affect our ability to make rent and remain open unless we get full support from our members and guests.
It all seems silly, illogical and nonsensical and we'd like to just ignore it, but Qld Police have said they will be out and about strictly enforcing these vaccination rules.
Queensland businesses who defy COVID-19 vaccination rules face fines of up to $13,800, while their owners could face six months jail. That's not something Tablelands Music Lovers club can afford to risk.
(The penalties are consistent with those throughout the pandemic under state law, which calls for a maximum penalty of 100 penalty units.)
We'll certainly attempt to keep you up to date on any changes (or hopefully revoked) via our Newsletters and on our social media pages.
However, up to date information can always be found on the Qld Gov website .
Please follow this link for information about adding your digital vaccination certificate to your phone..
Please don't get angry at us or our volunteers, we won't tolerate any abuse.
Thanks for understanding our position.
Note: In spite of commonly circulating social media posts claiming otherwise, these mandates are not illegal.
In short, the mandates are powers given to the CHO (Chief Health Officer) after the declaration of a Public Health Emergency
due to COVID-19 under the Public Health Act 2005 (QLD) (the Act). Acts are Laws made by Parliament, and they are enforceable.
Membership Renewals are now due
