Community Update 10 July 2020
From midday 10 July 2020, there are no entry requirements, quarantine requirements and travel restrictions for Queensland’s remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
The whole of Queensland now operates under Stage 3 of the Roadmap to easing Queensland’s restrictions.
The Chief Health Officer may decide to re-introduce restrictions if an outbreak of COVID-19 occurs in a community. Decisions will be made by the Chief Health Officer based on public health conditions for each community and in consultation with local leaders.
