  3. Exercise within your local area (within a 10km radius of your home, with no more than one person from outside your household)

Restrictions on businesses have been eased due to the great job Queenslanders have done in limiting community transmission of COVID-19. There is no longer a requirement for restricted businesses to operate under a COVID Safe Industry Plan or any of the ‘industry specific’ COVID Safe Checklists.

COVID Safe Industry Plans and industry specific checklists have now been replaced by the COVID Safe Checklist for Restricted Businesses (the Checklist).

The Checklist outlines the control measures that need to be implemented by restricted businesses to keep staff and customers COVID safe, and will promote consistency between different industry sectors.

Restricted businesses must ensure that a signed copy of the Checklist is displayed at the business premises.
