COVID-19 State Government Regulation – Facilities

As border restrictions ease, the Queensland Government expect to see more cases of COVID-19 circulate in our community. The Queensland State Government have legislated some restrictions for unvaccinated people to manage this. These measures have been developed to help reduce the demand on the hospital system in the event of anticipated outbreaks.

The below facilities have been identified as restricted venues under these new State Government laws. Accordingly, limitations will apply when hiring these facilities.
