People who have not been vaccinated can now visit Queensland’s public and private hospitals.

Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said the further easing of restrictions on Monday was possible because of Queensland’s strong health response.

However, masks will still be required when visiting health facilities.

“As Queensland moves to living with COVID, we can now take the next step in easing restrictions,” the Minister said.

“The acting Chief Health Officer has advised that the vaccination mandate for hospital visitors is no longer necessary to respond to the spread of COVID-19.

“The limit on visitors will also be removed, however hospitals will continue to manage visitor numbers locally.

“The requirement to collect contact information for all visitors has also been eased.

“Easing these restrictions will allow staff currently performing concierge duties to be re-tasked to support delivery of more critical hospital services.

“Throughout the pandemic we’ve followed the health advice and we continue to do so.”

Limitations on entry to vulnerable settings for diagnosed persons and close contacts will continue to operate for visitors.
