State Government’s COVID-19 restrictions are set to change

State Government 80% vaccination rules

COVID-19 restrictions are set to change significantly in Queensland, including Redland City, from 17 December 2021 or once 80% of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated.

In November the Queensland Government – which is responsible for managing the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in our state – announced measures relating to unvaccinated people, including restricting entry into some public places.

Redland City Council, along with councils across Queensland, has questions about how these restrictions will impact council facilities, services and events and, as a group, is urgently seeking clarity from the Queensland Government.

When that urgently needed clarity is provided, Council will advise the community through its many regular communication channels including this website, social media, local media, newsletters, correspondence to our stakeholder groups and at our facilities, including libraries, galleries, IndigiScapes Centre, Customer Contact Centres and Redland Performing Arts Centre.

Questions regarding the requirement for mandatory vaccines, as outlined in the State Government’s COVID-19 roadmap, should be directed to Queensland Health.

A safe place

Redland City Council is committed – and obliged – to follow any current Queensland Government health directives and provide a safe place for its employees and visitors.

Our Council continues to strongly encourage the vaccination of its employees, contractors and visitors. Currently there are no vaccination mandates in place for residents accessing Council services.

Masks and travel

Queensland has reached 80% single-dose vaccination, which means face mask restrictions have eased. Travel restrictions are also set to ease further when the state reaches 80% double vaccination. Check the Queensland Health website for more updates.
