Face masks are currently mandatory for travel at all times in the following situations:
- when you are in in all indoor areas of a Queensland airport as well as outdoor passenger transport and passenger waiting areas – for example at taxi ranks, public pickup areas, airport car parks, train platforms and skybridges
- during a domestic flight
- if you are arriving to Queensland from overseas or from a COVID-19 hotspot you must wear a face mask while travelling from the airport until you reach your allocated room in your quarantine accommodation
- if you are a driver of a bus, coach service, taxi or rideshare transporting a person required to or from quarantine.
There are some exceptions to wearing a face mask, including:
- children under 12
- a person eating, drinking or taking medicine
- where visibility of the mouth is essential
- where a mask needs to be removed to clearly communicate
- a person with a particular medical condition or disability
- a person undergoing medical treatment
- if a person is asked to remove a face mask for identity purposes
- if wearing a mask creates a risk to a person’s health and safety
- in an emergency or when required by law
- in any circumstances when it’s not safe to wear a mask
- if you are an air crew member or airport worker who is not interacting directly with passengers.
If you traveled on a quarantine free flight from a safe travel zone country to Australia, you can enter Queensland without needing to quarantine.
If you have been overseas in the last 14 days prior to arriving in Queensland and did not travel to Australia from a safe travel zone country on a quarantine free flight, you will have to quarantine for 14 days in government arranged accommodation at your own cost.
