Redland City Council has announced that a range of public programs at art galleries and libraries have been cancelled or postponed under measures to limit the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Local Disaster Management Group chairwoman mayor Karen Williams said the programs had been suspended until further notice.

Based on the social distancing and hygiene requirements for COVID-19, the difficult decision was made to suspend public programs at the Cleveland and Capalaba galleries and the Cleveland, Capalaba and Victoria Point libraries.

Galleries and libraries will remain open, however activities where social distancing would be difficult to maintain, including a range of school holiday activities, have been suspended.

You will still be able to go to your local gallery, while public computers, printing, Wi-Fi and borrowing will be available at libraries.

The libraries online services include e-books, e-audio books, e-magazines, music, movies and childrens stories for people who dont want to visit a branch.

The cancellations follow the suspension of performances at the Redland Performing Art Centre announced by council on Monday, March 16.

Redland City Council chief executive Andrew Chesterman said council thanked residents for their understanding.

"During this difficult time ... we prioritise the wellbeing of our customers, employees, volunteers and visitors and act to limit the spread of the virus in our community," he said.

"Council will continue to keep residents updated on the availability of programs and services as the situation develops."
