dr. Young spent Thursday greeting seniors during a tour of the official residence. Members of the Portofino Residential Aged Care Facility toured the building in the morning.

The team of dr. Young said the retirement home has been notified and the meeting was Covid-safe.

“The Governor had social distance from the group and was in their company for less than 5 minutes.”

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said many Australians had the virus and wished the governor well.

“So many other people in the state have it too – there are more than 550 people in hospital right now – but I know that the people of Queensland also want to pass on their best wishes to the governor,” she said at a news conference.
