From 4 pm AEST Sunday 8 August until 4 pm AEST Sunday 22 August the 11 Local Government Areas in South East Queensland will come out of lockdown.

All Carers Queensland offices will remain open for business as usual, however, we will have a reduced number of staff at each site to ensure everyone remains as safe as possible.

All visitors to our offices are requested to wear a mask at all times they are on the premises unless an exemption applies.

  • Schools will reopen, with all staff and high school students wearing masks
  • 10 people in your home, including people who live there
