Lifeguards are still urging beachgoers to follow a few simple rules if they’re headed to the beach.
– Physical distancing.
– Stay home if sick.
– Don’t gather in groups more than 20.
– Please show respect to our lifesavers & lifeguards.
– Only swim at fully patrolled beaches & always swim between the flags.
It’s understood Gold Coast Council will make a separate announcement about what’s happening on our beaches.
