What has changed since 2 September
The Direction has been updated to:
- Provide advice that this Direction should be read alongside the Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Direction (No. 5) to determine what requirements apply to businesses
- Clarify the range of essential activities that are not considered a gathering.
Due to recently announced cases in Queensland extra restrictions have now been put in place for movement and gatherings in listed Local Government Areas.
These restrictions mean you:
- can have a maximum of 10 people in your home, including the members of your household that live there. The visitors can be from different households
- can have a public gathering with a maximum of 10 people including yourself and members of your household
- can’t have any visitors if you have 10 or more people living in your household.
Extra restrictions have also been put in place for movement and gatherings in areas outside of listed local government areas.
These restrictions mean you can:
- have a maximum of 30 people in your home, including the members of your household that live there. The visitors can be from different households
- have a public gathering with a maximum of 30 people including yourself and members of your household.
It is important to read this Direction in conjunction with the Restrictions on Business, Activities and Undertakings Direction (No.5).
Advice on going out, travel, recreation and gathering in Queensland
Together Queenslanders have slowed the spread of COVID-19 by following advice and using common sense to safeguard ourselves and our communities. As a result, the Queensland Government will continue to ease restrictions on getting together, outings and recreational activities within Queensland.
Queenslanders can travel anywhere in Queensland for any reason. There is no limit on distance. You can stay overnight anywhere in Queensland for as many nights as you like.
Please refer to the Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Direction (No. 5) for how the businesses, activities and undertakings should operate from midday 3 July 2020.
Protecting our most vulnerable
You must practice physical distancing as much as possible and:
- wash your hands regularly with soap and water, and use alcohol-based sanitiser
- avoid hugs, kisses and handshakes
- wherever possible keep at least 1.5 metres away, two big steps, from people you don’t live with.
