Pandemic Response PPE guidance documents

Note: This advice is effective from Thursday 1 April 2021.

In ongoing response to the COVID-19 clusters in Brisbane, all Queenslanders must wear a face mask in indoor spaces. This restriction will be reviewed on 15 April 2021.

In addition, when applying these PPE guidance documents, the following Local Government Areas (LGAs) remain in the “moderate” community transmission risk category:

  • Brisbane City Council
  • Moreton Bay Regional Council
  • Logan City Council
  • Redland City Council
  • Ipswich City Council
  • Rockhampton Regional Council
  • Gladstone Regional Council.

NOTE: While all other LGAs currently remain in the ‘low’ risk category, all Residential Aged Care Facilities and Disability residential care facilities throughout Queensland must also implement “moderate” precautions.
