COVID Safe celebrations and holidays


We want everyone to have a safe and happy Easter. We’d like to remind all Queensland residents and visitors to stay up to date with the latest health directions that will be in place over the long weekend and school holidays.

Make sure you stay home when you’re sick and get tested (Opens in new window) if you have COVID-19 symptoms (Opens in new window), keep a distance of 1.5 metres from others– that’s two big steps – and wash your hands regularly.

If you are indulging this Easter, remember to drink water straight after eating any sweet treats to help wash away residual sugars. Your teeth and your dentist will thank you!

If you are travelling this Easter, remember:

  • If you are flying, you must wear a face mask at all times at the airport and on the plane
  • If the space you are in is or becomes overcrowded, move elsewhere or choose to return at an off-peak time.
  • Make hygiene your number one priority when travelling. This is recommended regardless of whether you are staying in a hotel or in a camping ground. Always carry tissues and hand sanitiser.
  • Check in to all venues to assist with contact tracing.
  • If you are travelling interstate, check your destination’s state government travel restrictions for the latest information.
