Byron Bay’s Bluesfest is CANCELLED for the second-straight year after Queensland’s Covid cluster spread to the town

Byron Bay’s Bluesfest has been cancelled thanks to the Queensland Covid outbreak that has spread to the idyllic coastal town. 

The popular annual music festival was set to be one of the biggest the world has seen since the pandemic – but has been called off at the last second due to fears the carnival could lead to a super-spreader event.

New South Wales recorded one coronavirus case overnight after an infected nurse working in Brsibane attended a hen’s party in Byron Bay over the weekend.

Bluesfest has become the first major casualty of the new case as the holiday destination now regresses into tight restrictions to prevent further cases.

The northern NSW man aged in his 20s tested positive on Tuesday night after sitting within close proximity to an infected hen’s party from Queensland at the Byron Beach Hotel last Friday. He is now in isolation. 

Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced new rules for the far northern NSW holiday hotspot and the surrounding Ballina, Tweed and Lismore local government areas, which come into effect 5pm Wednesday and continue over the Easter long weekend until midnight April 5.  

 

Gatherings in homes, including holiday rental properties have been restricted to a maximum 30 people in the four northern NSW local government areas.

Public indoor settings including hospitality venues must revert back to the one person per four square metre rule while the wearing of masks in shops, public transport and taxis will be mandatory.
