Queensland's Roadmap to Easing Restrictions
As restrictions begin to ease, many businesses are preparing to re-open. Queensland’s Roadmap to Easing Restrictions outlines which businesses can operate at which stage, and what customer limits apply on premises. All businesses will need to do some planning to ensure they keep their business, staff and their customers safe.
Industry COVID Safe Plans
Starting from Stage 2 under Queensland’s Roadmap to Easing Restrictions eligible businesses who wish to have additional customers on their business premises, and whose business premises are large enough to do so and still meet the 4 square metre rule, will be able to apply the strategies and protocols outlined in their relevant approved Industry COVID Safe plan to do so.
From Stage 2, eligible business who are following an approved Industry COVID Safe Plan will be able to offer their services beyond the limits prescribed in the Roadmap. An approved Industry COVID Safe Plan may specify a higher number of persons for Stage 2 if they have clearly demonstrated measures that satisfy the Chief Health Officer that they can safely do so and continue to meet one person per four square metres. An industry should highlight this as a component of their plan submission.
