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.
