From 4pm Friday 20 August 2021 restrictions will ease in the Local Government Areas of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Logan, Redland, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Noosa, Somerset, Lockyer Valley and Scenic Rim.

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.

Some restrictions will continue to apply, including:

  • You must carry a mask with you at all times and wear it in indoor spaces. You only need to wear a mask outdoors when you are unable to socially distance
  • Gatherings restricted to 30 people in homes (including residents) and public spaces
  • Weddings and funerals can have up to 100 people attend
  • Community sport to resume, with spectators in line with stadiums and indoor and outdoor event requirements
  • Indoor and outdoor events and stadiums can have 75% ticketed and allocated seating capacity
