Face masks — coronavirus (COVID-19)

From 6 p.m. Monday 31 October 2022, there are no Public Health Directions in effect requiring you to wear a face mask.

Masks are still recommended:

Queensland Health's traffic light system will help you understand the current level of risk and take appropriate precautions.

You may still be asked to wear a mask

Businesses and facilities may still require masks to be worn in certain circumstances. For example:

  • your general practitioner may ask you to wear a mask when in their waiting and consulting rooms
  • a hospital may require you to wear a mask when visiting patients or in certain areas
  • a carer may be asked to wear a mask when providing care to a vulnerable person

If you’re asked to wear a mask, we ask that you cooperate with that request.
