As of Friday, March 4, 2022, the following face mask rules will be instigated as per the Queensland government:

  • Masks will no longer be required indoors, except in hospitals, residential aged care, disability accommodation, prisons, public transport, airports and on planes.

  • Masks will no longer be required in schools, including for staff, students and visitors.

  • Masks will still be recommended whenever you can’t social distance.

Until the aforementioned face mask rules are officially implemented, you must wear a mask indoors everywhere in Queensland. This includes:

  • All indoor workplaces

  • Public transport and rideshare

  • Supermarkets and retail shops

  • Hospitality venues including pubs, clubs and cafes

  • Cinemas and theatres

  • Indoor stadium, sports arena or sports centre

  • Gyms and sport activities

  • Vulnerable settings like hospitals and aged care

  • Schools, childcare and other education facilities

  • Airports and on planes

You do not need to wear a mask outdoors if you can remain 1.5 metres away from others that are not members of your household.

Children under 12 years and people affected by a medical condition or disability do not lawfully have to wear a face mask. See exceptions from wearing face masks.
