  • Masks will no longer be required indoors, except in hospitals, residential aged care, disability accommodation, prisons, public transport, airports and on planes.
  • Masks will no longer be required in schools, including for staff, students and visitors.
  • Masks will still be recommended whenever you can’t social distance.
  • There will be no limit on the number of visitors you can have in your home at one time.

Until then, current face mask requirements (see below) and other public health and social measures remain in effect.

Back to School Plan

The Queensland Government has released its back to school plan. The plan will be in place from 7 February to 4 March 2022.

Download a copy of the plan.

Unsure about what the plan means for your school tuckshop? QAST recommends convenors and P&Cs work with the school principal to establish guidelines and limits on visitors (including volunteers) and activities on school grounds.

Mandatory face masks

From Sunday 2 January 2022, you must wear a mask indoors everywhere in Queensland. This includes:

  • all indoor workplaces
  • public transport and rideshare
  • supermarkets and retail shops
  • hospitality venues including pubs, clubs and cafes
  • cinemas and theatres
  • indoor stadium, sports arena or sports centre
  • gyms and sport activities
  • vulnerable settings like hospitals and aged care
  • schools, childcare and other education facilities
  • airports and on planes

You do not need to wear a mask outdoors if you can remain 1.5 metres away from others that are not members of your household.

Children under 12 years and people affected by a medical condition or disability do not lawfully have to wear a face mask. See exceptions from wearing face masks.

Read the full health directive or take a look at more questions about face masks.
