Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young has extended the class exemption for farmers and agribusiness workers who need to move between Queensland and NSW to perform essential agribusiness services or farming activities, such as tending to livestock or crops.
The class exemption, which came into effect on August 31, has been extended for another month, ie. from September 21.
The exemption does not apply to seasonal workers.
To enter Queensland under this class exemption, workers will need a copy of the new Chief Health Officer’s class exemption letter and continue to meet strict guidelines.
They must also carry evidence of their identity, confirming their place of residence and evidence they are an agribusiness essential worker (eg. letter of employment, business contract etc).
