Increased restrictions for movement and gatherings in South-East Queensland
Due to recently announced cases in Queensland extra restrictions have now been put in place for movement and gatherings in Queensland.
These restrictions mean if you live in listed Local Government Areas you can :
- have a maximum of 10 visitors to your home. The visitors can be from different households
- have a public gathering with a maximum of 10 people including yourself, or with members of your household.
Extra restrictions have also been put in place for movement and gatherings in areas outside of listed local government areas.
These restrictions include:
- have a maximum of 30 visitors to your home. The visitors can be from different households
- have a public gathering with a maximum of 30 people including yourself, or with members of your household.
These additional restrictions are also in place:
- Residential aged care
- disability accommodation facilities
- Hospitals have been asked to restrict visitors
- Hospital emergency departments, aged care facilities and disability accommodation facilities will use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including face masks and gloves to treat all patients and residents.
These measures will be taken in response to possible community spread associated with a recent COVID-19 case. Protective lockdown will require accommodation providers to restrict visitor access, and for staff to wear masks.
More detailed information will be made available as soon as possible via the Queensland Health website.
