We’ve squashed our curve, and some major coronavirus restrictions are being eased today – including the opening up of the state for all Queenslanders.

Here’s what will be able to take place from noon today:

  • With the exception of indigenous communities, Queenslanders will be able to travel anywhere within the state
  • You can also stay as long as you like, with the state government encouraging us to get out and visit somewhere in Queensland we haven’t visited before
  • Camping sites and caravan parks will reopen across the state
  • Gatherings of up to 20 people are now allowed – this includes the family home
  • Cafe’s, restaurants and pubs can now have 20 patrons per room or defined area
  • Non-contact community sport can return
  • Parks, playground equipment, skate parks and outdoor gyms can be used
  • Places of Worship can operate with more than 20 people if following an approved COVID SAFE Plan approved by health authorities
  • Weddings can have 20 guests plus the couple and celebrant; funerals can now accommodate 50 mourners
  • Gyms, yoga studios, indoor sporting centres and dance studios can reopen with up to 20 people at a time for non-contact activities
