Queensland Government announces restrictions at 80% vaccination

10 November 2021 12:50 PM | QSEC Admin (Administrator)

Queensland is set to ease restrictions for entry to Queensland from 17 December 2021, which is the date it is expected that at least 80% of Queenslanders, 16 years and older, will be double vaccinated.

The Government has announced that there will be restrictions for unvaccinated staff and patrons for a range of hospitality and entertainment venues.

QSEC would like to know how best to help businesses impacted by these new restrictions.

Take the survey and tell us now 

Modelling indicates that when the border restrictions are eased, the COVID virus will start to circulate in our community. It is likely that outbreaks will start to occur, particularly in areas of Queensland with low vaccination rates. This will be particularly difficult for health professionals and front line workers, vulnerable and marginalised communities with complex needs and issues. 

Because of this, the Queensland State Government has announced restrictions for unvaccinated people when 80% double vaccination is achieved.

At this stage, restrictions target non-essential leisure activities including attending hospitality venues (hotels, pubs, clubs, taverns, bars, restaurants and cafes) and entertainment venues (nightclubs, live music venues, stadiums, theatres, cinemas and festivals).

As a guide, essential services or activities are the same businesses that remained open during lockdowns, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, post offices, newsagents and clothing stores and activities such as exercise.
