Life is returning to somewhat normal for the Gold Coast this morning after the snap-lockdown across the South East finally came to an end overnight
As a result, a raft of city facilities and services will resume today after initially being halted due to the stay-at-home orders imposed by the State Government.
While most services will be back up and running, council has confirmed community sport across the coast will remain suspended for the next two weeks, as per the State’s top doctor’s orders.
