Queensland’s new COVID rule change in time for return of university

Under the public health order changes, events with more than 10,000 people attending must submit a COVID-safe plan 20 business days before the event.

Multi-day events, such as music festivals, with on-site accommodation including camping must have a plan approved by the local public health unit or the Chief Health Officer regardless of how many people are attending.

University classes begin on Monday.

The changes come after Queensland recorded no local COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, the same day a freezer was delivered to the Gold Coast University Hospital in preparation for the arrival of the first batch of Pfizer vaccines.

The first 100 people will be vaccinated on the Gold Coast on Monday, before others are jabbed at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane on Wednesday and in Cairns on Friday.

The state expected to receive about 10,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine each week as it worked to inject 88,000 frontline workers and elderly people in the next two months.

Most Queenslanders will receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, with plans to inject every adult by the end of October.

“No one will be missed here,” Dr Young said.
