Important updates regarding COVID-19

Updated on 28 June 2022

#Easing of COVID-19 restrictions

14 April 2022


From 1am AEST Thursday 14 April 2022, the requirement to check-in and/or be fully vaccinated, will ease for the majority of venues and events in Queensland.

Venues include pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants; theme parks, casinos and cinemas; weddings; showgrounds; and galleries, libraries, museums and stadiums.

Although not specifically included in this list, theatres, arts, culture and live music venues will also no longer be subject to mandated vaccination and check in requirements. This is because, as with those settings listed, they are not vulnerable or high risk settings.

Vaccination and check-in requirements will continue for anyone visiting or working in vulnerable settings (hospitals, disability accommodation services and residential aged care) as well as for workers in high-risk settings including schools, childcare, prisons and airports.

The Omicron strain of COVID-19 is spreading rapidly through school-aged children. Schools are considered to be high-risk and in need of an ongoing vaccination and check-in mandate.

Queensland’s vaccination rates among school-aged children remain significantly lower than the rest of the population. Teachers and school staff are also a vital workforce that we want to do everything we can to protect. Having them vaccinated helps to keep them safe and to reduce the likelihood of classes being interrupted or affected by staff absences.


QPAC


Masks are not mandatory at QPAC however, we strongly recommend you take a mask with you to the theatre for use where physical distancing is not possible.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
