COVID-19 hotspots



Hotspots are places in Australian states or territories other than Queensland, or in safe travel zone countries where health officials have found a lot of people with COVID-19, or places that are at risk of a lot of COVID-19 infections. Hotspots are legally listed so that we can identify people travelling into Queensland from those high-risk areas.

Entering Queensland from a COVID-19 hotspot

People who have been in a hotspot in the last 14 days or since the start date identified for the hotspot (whichever is shorter), will only be able to enter Queensland if they are a returning Queensland resident or required to enter for a limited range of essential reasons. Queensland residents returning to Queensland from a hotspot must quarantine for 14 days on entering Queensland in government arranged accommodation at their own expense. This will help reduce the chance that they might infect other people.

Details of who is exempt from mandatory quarantine, even if they have been to a hotspot, can be found on the Travelling to Queensland page.

Declaration of COVID-19 hotspots

Hotspots are legally listed so that people travelling from those high-risk areas into Queensland can be identified.

See the Chief Health Officer's Declaration of COVID-19 hotspots.

LGAs declared as hotspots (and their identified start date)

  • A hotspot's declaration date is when the hotspot is legally listed.
  • The identified start date for the hotspot is when the risk of COVID-19 transmission started. The start date identified can be earlier than when the hotspot was declared.
  • Border restrictions will apply to persons who have been in a hotspot in the previous 14 days or since the start date identified for the hotspot (whichever is shorter).
