As Facebook becomes the new government news service, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk MP announced yesterday via social media that the Queensland border is about to close.
Her post says simply: ‘Queensland’s border closure will take effect at midnight on Wednesday,’ said Ms Palaszczuk in the post.
‘The Queensland Disaster Management Committee will meet tomorrow to finalise details – including exemptions – and more detail will be released at that time. #coronavirus.’
Strangely, neither the Queensland government website nor Ms Palaszczuk’s official website have anything at all on the closure, in fact, her last public statement on her official website was made on March 16.
The only written statement seems to be on social media. At least it’s Facebook official.
The same announcement was also made on Twitter.
