Queensland Health has released the new Public Health and Social Measures linked to  vaccination status Direction outlining the rules coming into effect for business and Queenslanders from 17 December 2021.

Vaccine Rules

From 17 December, there will be no capacity restrictions on non-essential leisure businesses that are only permitted to allow fully vaccinated people, including:

• hospitality venues such as pubs, clubs, taverns, bars, restaurants, cafes and fast food outlets
• indoor entertainment venues such as nightclubs, live music venues, karaoke bars, concerts, theatres or cinemas, casinos
• outdoor entertainment activities such as sporting stadiums or theme parks
• festivals – either indoor or outdoor – such as musical festivals, folk festivals or arts festivals
• activities – either indoor or outdoor – such as convention centres and showgrounds
• Queensland Government owned galleries, museums or libraries.

Support For Business


These businesses will need to display  signage clearly outlining the  requirement to be vaccinated to enter  the premises and use best efforts to  ask for evidence of vaccination  from customers at the time of check-in or at the point of sale/service.  Support for businesses to manage  these requirements is available.

Unvaccinated people will still  be able  to access essential  services and  activities, such  as retail outlets,  places of  worship and public  transport.

Essential businesses can also  voluntarily elect to adopt these  measures if they believe it best  suits  their business needs and  customer expectations. 

However, for some businesses, capacity restrictions will still remain. A list of the requirements for different types of businesses is included in the new public health direction.

From 1am AEST Monday 13 December 2021, Queensland’s border restrictions will ease further for fully vaccinated residents and visitors. For more information visit the Queensland Health website.
