Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk applauded Queenslanders for their social distancing.
“You are doing us all proud, and of course the weekend is crucial. I hope that everyone acts responsibly, and they enjoy the lifting of some restrictions,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
From tomorrow, as well as essential movement which is already allowed, some recreation within 50 kilometres is permitted for households (or individuals plus one other person) with social distancing.
The Premier today also cleared the way for the NRL season to resume on May 28th, dependent on Chief Health Officer advice that the league’s plan is workable, and the NRL’s assurance that players won’t break restrictions.
“It must not put at risk our excellent work containing the spread of COVID-19,” she said.
- The Premier said work was being done on other issues such as dining out.
“We’ll have detailed discussions with organisations, looking at what’s COVID safe,” she said.
- Visitors to aged care facilities now must have a recent flu vaccination, if it’s available.
