PART 1 – DIRECTION – RESTRICTIONS ON BUSINESSES, ACTIVITIES AND UNDERTAKINGS

Operating a Restricted Business, Activity or Undertaking

  1. A restricted business, activity or undertaking is a business, activity or undertaking of the type specified in column 1 of Schedule 1.

    Note – Schedule 1 comprises Schedule 1A, Schedule 1B and Schedule 1C.

  2. A person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking in the State of Queensland including operating at a private residence, or in a public space, must when operating the business, activity or undertaking:

    1. comply with any restrictions listed in Schedule 1; and

    2. comply with the occupant density for indoor spaces for a business in Schedule 1A and Schedule 1B; and

      Note – nothing in this Direction is taken to allow a business to exceed the number of occupants permitted under regulations or legislation applying to the business such as fire safety, planning approvals or workplace health and safety regulations. However, subject to permitted occupancy under such other regulations or legislation, a business may have an occupant density of 3 people per 4 square metres (which equates to 1.5 people per 2 square metres) without ticketed or allocated seating or, the business may exceed this density if all patrons are in ticketed and allocated seating. See Definitions – Schedule 2

    3. comply with the COVID Safe Checklist for a business in Schedule 1A and Schedule 1B; and

    4. display the COVID Safe Checklist in a place visible to guests, patrons and staff; and

    5. comply with the public health controls for a business in Schedule 1A and Schedule 1B; and

    6. collect contact information as required under Part 2

    unless a different requirement is specified in Schedule 1.
    Note – people should observe physical distancing to the extent possible.
  1. Occupant density means:

    1. in an indoor space, no more than 3 people per 4 square metres for areas open to or used by guests or patrons; or

      Example for (a): an area open to or used by guests or patrons of a café or restaurant is the dining area but not the kitchen.

    2. in an indoor space, up to 100 per cent of seated venue capacity provided all guests or patrons are in ticketed and allocated seating.

      Notes - a venue or event with an indoor space and outdoor space must comply with the occupant density requirements for the indoor space but does not need to limit occupant density in the outdoor space.

  2. To the extent of any inconsistency:

    1. the Direction prevails over the COVID Safe Checklist, COVID Safe Event Checklist, COVID Safe Site Specific Plan and COVID Safe Professional Sporting Code Plan; and

    2. the COVID Safe Checklist and COVID Safe Event Checklist prevail over a COVID Safe Site Specific Plan or COVID Safe Professional Sporting Code Plan.

PART 2 – COLLECTION OF CONTACT INFORMATION USING CHECK IN QLD APP

Electronic collection of contact information

  1. A person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking in Schedule 1 must make all reasonable efforts to electronically collect contact information about all guests, patrons and staff at the time of entry by either:

    1. requesting each guest, patron and staff member use the Check In Qld app; or

    2. registering each guest, patron and staff member through the Business Profile mode of the Check In Qld app.

      Example – a person may be unable to use the Check in Qld app due to age, disability, language barriers or does not possess the technology or own a mobile phone. The business must register the guest through the Business Profile mode.

  2. A person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking in Schedule 1 is not required to request a person’s contact information under paragraph 10(a) if:

    1. the person is or appears to be younger than 16 years old and is not accompanied by a parent or adult who can provide information on their behalf; or

    2. the person enters in an emergency or is entering to provide emergency services; or

    3. it is not reasonable to collect contact information due to a risk to a person’s safety.

  3. A person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking in Schedule 1 must make all reasonable efforts to clearly display the Check in Qld app QR code at each entry to the business that is used by guests or patrons.

Collection of contact information using another method due to temporary circumstances

  1. If a person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking cannot electronically collect contact information for guests, patrons and staff at the time of entry because it is not possible to use the Check in Qld app due to unexpected circumstances, a risk of safety issues or because the business is located in a place that does not have mobile internet data connection, the person must collect and keep contact information using another method.

    Example of another method – another electronic method such as a spreadsheet or another method such as a paper-based form.

    Example of a place with mobile data internet connection - a remote camping ground or remote community may not have internet connection or mobile internet data available in the community.

  2. Note - unexpected circumstances may include temporary issues such as failure of an internet service or breakdown in the Check in Qld app. Safety issues may include a risk of overcrowding while patrons wait to be checked in by the business using the Business Profile mode.

  1. If contact information is collected using ‘another method’ under paragraph 13, the person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking must:

    1. use best endeavours to transfer any non-electronic information to an electronic system within 24 hours of collecting the information; and

      Example - an electronic method such as a spreadsheet

    2. comply with the requirements for collection and storage; and

    3. if requested, provide the information collected under paragraph 13 and the electronic information under paragraph 14(a) to a public health officer within a stated time.

Dancing

  1. A person who owns, controls or operates a restricted business, activity or undertaking, may operate an area for dancing on the basis that no more than 3 people per 4 square metres dance in the dance area.

    2. ensuring staff encourage patrons to observe physical distancing in dance areas; and

    3. using tables or other fixtures to encourage the distribution of people in a dance area in settings where it is appropriate and safe to do so.

      Example – an RSL or nightclub may allow dancing to occur in an indoor or outdoor space using fixtures, where it is appropriate and safe to do so, to encourage groups of people to be evenly distributed across a dance area. Mosh pits, or dance areas that exceed 3 people per 4 square metres are not permitted.

Non-Restricted Businesses, Activities and Undertakings and Schedule 1C businesses

  1. A non-restricted business, activity or undertaking, and a restricted business, activity or undertaking in Schedule 1C, may otherwise operate as normal, with physical distancing and public health controls observed to the extent possible and subject to any other applicable Public Health Directions.

PART 3 – OBLIGATION ON INDIVIDUALS TO PROVIDE CONTACT INFORMATION

  1. A person who enters a premises for a restricted business, activity or undertaking specified in Schedule 1 must at the time of entry provide the person’s contact information to the operator of the business by:

    1. using the Check in Qld App; or

    2. providing their contact details to the operator of the business to be registered using the Business Profile mode of the Check In Qld app; or

    3. if another method of collection is being used under paragraph 13, using that method.

  2. If a person is unable to provide contact information because of age, disability or an inability to speak or comprehend the language used by the Check In Qld App or the other method of collection, another person may provide contact information on the person’s behalf. A person is not required to provide contact information if they are an unaccompanied minor under the age of 16, in an emergency situation or if there is a risk to a person’s safety.
