BREAKING: The Chief Health Officer has given the all-clear to ease some restrictions early thanks to the strong health response of Queenslanders.

From 4pm today, Friday October 16:

➡ Up to 40 people can dance at weddings with a COVID Safe Plan

➡ Dancing will be permitted at Year 12 school formals

➡ Gatherings of 40 people will be allowed in homes and public places

➡ Outings from aged care facilities can resume

Queenslanders have done a great job of fighting this virus and deserve to have restrictions lifted as soon as it’s safe to do so. It’s still incredibly important to follow the health advice – if you’re unwell, stay home and get tested.
