STILL HAPPENING: Easter in the Country scheduled to go ahead

Roma’s five day Easter in the Country Festival will go ahead as planned despite Brisbane’s snap three-day lockdown and statewide COVID-19 restrictions enforced.

EITC President Jenny Flynn said the committee is keeping abreast of all COVID-19 developments and taking advice from Queensland Health who have approved a Level 2 Industry COVID Plan for the festival.

Mrs Flynn said the festival is to proceed as per the program and should this change communication will be made via their website and Facebook page.

“The committee is saying if you’re sick, don’t come to the festival and get tested as per Queensland Health regulations,” Mrs Flynn said.

“We will be enforcing social distance as much as we can, there will be hand sanitiser stations everywhere and COVID Marshalls around handing out hand sanitiser and all of the activities are outside.

“After a lot of organisation and effort, we want to have a festival with the COVID conditions.

“We may enforce people to wear masks but we are seeking clarification as the regulations may change on Wednesday evening.”

Mrs Flynn said some artists or stall holders have raised concerns about coming to Roma, however she said the committee will endeavour to sort these issues.

The committee are receiving a lot of phone calls and emails and will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible.
