Stage 1 Easing of COVID-19 Restrictions

Back

The Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) has reviewed the latest Public Health Directions in relation to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions across Queensland.

The LDMG in conjunction with Queensland Police acknowledges and thanks the community for their compliance and response to restrictions in the past weeks.

The new easing of restrictions are widespread across the community and there will be a multi-agency focus based on education and self-compliance prior to enforcement. Relaxations include day trips within a 150km radius from your principal place of residence (excluding travel into the Outback – see attached map) and limited restaurant/café dine-in options.

Whilst the Roadmap to easing Queensland’s restrictions is a good guide and indicative of these changes, the official (and enforceable) rules are encompassed in the Chief Health Officer’s Public Health Directions.

These links may help you in seeking clarification particularly around travel in and out of your region. In addition all businesses should check prior to commencement for any additional reporting or regulations now required.

The State Government has created a hotline for the community to call to ask any questions or concerns they might have relating to the easing of restrictions. The number is 13QGOV (13 74 68).
