Dear Members,

Queensland is set to ease restrictions for entry to Queensland on 17 December 2021. This is when we expect at least 80% of Queenslanders, 16 years and older, to be double vaccinated. Restrictions may ease if Queensland is 80% double vaccinated before this date.

Some businesses will be required to restrict entry to unvaccinated people from this date. This includes yourself as a business owner and your employees if not fully vaccinated.

Vaccinated people will be able to visit or attend (with no capacity restrictions):

  • hospitality venues (e.g. hotels, pubs, clubs, taverns, bars, restaurants, cafes)
  • indoor entertainment venues (e.g. nightclubs, live music venues, karaoke bars, concerts, theatres, cinemas)
  • outdoor entertainment activities (e.g. sporting stadiums, theme parks)
  • indoor and outdoor festivals (e.g. musical festivals, folk festivals, arts festivals)
  • Queensland Government-owned galleries, museums, or libraries
  • weddings.

Unvaccinated people will be able to visit essential services (e.g. grocery stores, pharmacies, post offices, newsagents, clothing stores, limited retail stores, gyms) and attend funerals. Weddings are restricted to a maximum of 20 people if anyone attending is unvaccinated.
