Gold Coast Mayor pushes for December 1 reopening date

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate says he wants Queensland’s border opened on December 1, urging residents to get vaccinated.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the border will reopen on December 17, when the state is set to hit 80 per cent double vaccinations.

“Roll up your sleeve. Go to Bunnings and get a sausage and a jab,” Mr Tate said.

“Get out there and get vaccinated.”
