Bundaberg Tourism chief executive Katherine Reid said some businesses would remain closed for the remainder of this month.

“Many tourism attractions are finding that it will not be viable to open with only limited numbers and are planning towards June and July opening dates,” Ms Reid said.

“Our cafes and restaurants around the region are still offering some delicious and creative takeaway options.
