Queensland borders are expected to reopen to interstate travellers in time for Christmas.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the state is expected to reach the milestone of 70 percent of eligible people fully vaccinated on November 17, but if we hit the mark earlier she will ease restrictions earlier.
From November 17, people from a declared domestic hotspot who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to arrive by air provided they return a negative COVID test within 72 hours of arrival.
They will be allowed to home quarantine for 14 days.
From December 17, when the state is expected to hit 80 percent of eligible people vaccinated, fully vaccinated interstate travellers will be allowed to arrive by road or air as long as they have tested negative to COVID within 72 hours of arrival.
They will not be required to quarantine.
“December 17 is locked in…we have to reunite families,” Ms Palaszczuk says.
However she did not rule out lockdowns in future in areas of outbreak.
