Vaccination mandates and restrictions are to be relaxed further next week as Queensland “returns to a new normal”.
Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk said this morning restrictions would be lifted from 1am on Thursday April 14 and it was time to “reunite” the state.
Most venues that have been open to vaccinated staff and patrons will be open to all from April 14.
The venues include:
- Cafes and restaurants,
- Theme parks
- Casinos and cinemas
Vaccine requirements will still apply to visitors and workers in vulnerable settings including hospitals, aged care and disability care, prisons, schools and early childhood centres.
It comes as Queensland has more than 95 per cent of residents aged 12 and over with at least two vaccinations.
There are currently four patients on ventilation in intensive care units in the state’s hospitals, which expect to see admissions start falling in the next seven days.
