COVID-19 updates for businesses

On 29 January 2020, under the Public Health Act 2005, the Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services made an order declaring a public health emergency in relation to coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The public health emergency area specified in the order is for ‘all of Queensland’. Its duration has been extended by regulation to 17 August 2020 and may be further extended. Further to this declaration, Queensland's Chief Health Officer is issuing health directions to contain, or respond to, the spread of COVID-19 within the community. 

The Queensland Government has a roadmap in place for the easing of restrictions across the state.
