Latest Update Mon 29 November 2021

 

In planning for Queensland’s summer holiday period, there are number of important points that we must be aware of so we can reopen our borders to southern hotspots:

 

  1. Temporary PCR testing requirement

This temporary PCR testing requirement is only in place for domestic travel from hotspots until 90% of eligible Queenslanders have received a double dose of vaccination.

Consistent with other jurisdictions around Australia, PCR tests are an important safeguard in keeping Queenslanders safe as borders reopen. Indeed it is the same test that the Commonwealth requires for travellers arriving into Australia.

Once 90% of the eligible Queensland population is fully vaccinated, domestic travellers from hotspots who are fully vaccinated will not require a PCR test.

 

  1. Proof of PCR test

The Queensland Government will continue to accept proof of a negative PCR test via text message or other digital means.

This is aimed at making travel as seamless as possible and will forgo the need for travellers to obtain formal documentation of a negative PCR test.

The Commonwealth Government also has the option subsidise this important PCR test via Medicare with the stroke of a pen.

 

  1. Mandatory vaccination requirement for key staff:

The Queensland Government recently announced a number of measures that would require all staff and patrons to be vaccinated at a range of businesses and venues.

It is important to note that, regardless of how early Queensland may hit the 80% double dose vaccination rate, these measures will commence from 17 December 2021. This provides important certainty so businesses and staff can plan accordingly.

What this means for Tin Cup Café and Spirits of the Red Sand?  We will only be allowed to open for staff and patrons that are fully vaccinated from the 17 December 2021.  If for a private hire booking for unvaccinated, a maximum of 20 patrons is allowed or 1 person per 4sqm.
