Easing restrictions — coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Queensland Government Roadmap to Easing Restrictions outlines the staged approach to giving Queenslanders more freedom to travel, participate in more activities and hold more gatherings.
See the Chief Health Officer public health directions to find out more about the new guidelines and how to comply:
- Home Confinement, Movement and Gathering Direction (No. 5)
- Non-Essential Business, Activity and Undertaking Closure Direction (No.10)
Social distancing (also called physical distancing) is one way to help slow the spread of viruses and can help protect the people in our community who are most at risk of getting really sick from COVID-19. This includes:
- Stay home if you’re sick. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, get tested.
- Keep 1.5 metres away from others as much as you can—think two big steps.
- Avoid shaking hands, kissing or hugging others.
- If you can, work from home.
- outdoor gatherings are limited to 10 people, unless it's with people who live in the same household.
- Queenslanders can have 5 visitors into their residence who don’t always live there.
