What You Can and Can’t Do This Mother’s Day?

By May 8, 2020Covid-19, Safety

Queensland will again ease COVID-19 contact restrictions from Mother’s Day this Sunday (10/05/2020) to allow up to five members from one household to visit another home.

With multiple restriction easing announcements over a short-while we have put together a list of what you can and can’t do in Qld from Mother’s Day.

What can you do?

  • You can go shopping for non-essential goods
  • Kindergarten, Prep, Years 1, 11 and 12 go back to school on Monday
  • You can have a picnic with people from your house
  • If you go out by yourself, you can only meet one other person from outside your house for a run or picnic. It can only be the two of you, not your family plus one other
  • You can travel up 50 kilometres from your home with members of your house.
  • You can travel more than 50 kilometres if you’re visiting another household but you have to visit then leave, there’s no going to the shops or beach under this rule.
  • You can visit any business that’s open — like getting your hair cut
  • From Sunday, up to five people from a household can visit another household but hugging is still off the cards (sorry Mum)

What can’t you do?

  • Dining in at cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs still isn’t allowed but discussions are underway.
  • Gyms and public playgrounds are all still closed.
  • Queensland’s borders also remain closed.
  • Weddings are still restricted to five people: celebrant, the couple and two witnesses.
  • And funerals can still only have 10 people, unless the Chief Health Officer grants an exemption

Be safe, wash your hands, and stop the virus spreading.
