Premier and Minister for Trade – The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk
Queensland COVID-19 – Tuesday, April 21 – Anzac Day plans
Anzac Day will be commemorated and our veterans will be honoured this week while Queensland’s COVID-19 measures continue their effective role in limiting the spread of the virus, with six new cases confirmed today.
There are now 280 active cases with 738 recoveries and six deaths for a total of 1024.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the important social distancing measures mean this Saturday’s Anzac Day will be different.
She said Queenslanders will have new ways to pay their respects via live broadcasts, new technology and home services.
“We can all play our part to light up the dawn on our driveways and verandahs at 6.00am,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
“Earlier there will also be a very small service at 4.28am attended by the Governor, the Lord Mayor, the RSL Queensland President and myself as Premier.
“A symbolic gesture that the people of Queensland are recognising the fallen.”
