COVID-19 restrictions will be eased across Queensland from 6:00am on Thursday, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced.
Masks will no longer be mandatory indoors (except at airports and airport passenger waiting areas, such as car parks and taxi ranks).
Dancing will also be allowed again indoors and customers will be able to stand in hotels and clubs.
Visitors will be allowed at aged care homes, hospitals, correctional facilities and disability accommodation.
Queensland Health said while it would not be mandatory, Queenslanders were strongly encouraged to carry a mask with them at all times when they leave home; and wear a mask when travelling on public transport, in a taxi or rideshare, in shopping centres or any indoor or outdoor space when physical distancing was not possible.
The latest restrictions were imposed on April 1 after cases of community transmission were detected from clusters linked to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
