It means that Queenslanders won’t be required to carry and wear masks when they’re inside. Masks will still be required at the airport and on planes.
Families will be able to be reunited, with visits to hospitals, aged care facilities and disability facilities to return.
Home gatherings can go back to 100 people limits, while outdoor gatherings will go one step further and have no limit unless it’s a music event that requires a Covid-safe plan.
Ticketed events at stadiums will go back to 100 per cent capacity.
The Premier has also used the announcement to remind businesses around the state to start using the government’s Check In App.
It’s being mandated state-wide from May 1.
Meantime, there have been no new local cases diagnosed in Queensland overnight, but there were two new cases diagnosed in hotel quarantine.
