Masks will no longer be needed indoors, when 80 per cent of eligible Queenslanders have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Health Minister Yvette D’Ath have announced the next step in the state’s COVID-19 roadmap this morning.
With the milestone expected soon, Ms Palaszczuk says it will then be safe for schools, cafes, pubs, clubs, hairdressers and workplaces to go mask-free.
“This is another small step back towards life as normal,” she says.
“Queenslanders have done an incredible job all through the pandemic and this is their reward. The more of us who are vaccinated, the faster we return to life the way it used to be. That means life without the need to wear masks except at airports and on planes.”
