No new cases as Qld launches $150 sport vouchers for Qld kids

Queensland has recorded no new cases of coronavirus for the ninth day in a row.

There’s just one case across the whole state that remains active and that’s here on the Gold Coast.

The State Government has also today announced some good news for local sporting clubs and kids, with a fresh round of Fair Play vouchers now on offer.

The $150 vouchers will be available from tomorrow, to coincide with the resumption of full contact community sport.

“We know the devastating impact of this worldwide pandemic,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on Sunday.

“But we also know the benefits of playing sport and these vouchers not only help struggling families but also provide a mini-stimulus for the economy.”

Sport Minister Mick de Brenni acknowledged that the bank balance might be looking a little different for some mums and dads at the moment, but said the Government didn’t want to see anyone miss out on returning to sport.

“I can’t thank enough the Queensland volunteers running local clubs who’ve been superb in operating under COVID Safe requirements to keep their players and members safe throughout Stages 1 and 2 of our Roadmap to easing restrictions,” he said.

“It’s because of their great effort that we will now see the return of competition, including community AFL, with over 12,000 kids ready and raring to pick up the Sherrin.”

More than 4500 clubs have already registered to receive the 73,000 FairPlay vouchers on offer.
