“Everyone should feel comfortable and safe to go out and enjoy the cafes, restaurants, licensed venues and other services that have reopened following the most recent COVID-19 lockdown,” she said.
“Police will be ready to assist venues and entertainment precincts. Violence will not be tolerated and if anyone causes a disruption or fails to comply with venue rules and regulations they will be dealt with appropriately.
“Some COVID-19 restrictions still remain in place across the state, so we urge those going out to continue to observe social distancing rules and comply with all the relevant venue capacity requirements.
