COVID safe businesses
As restrictions begin to ease, businesses are starting to prepare to re-open. Queensland’s Roadmap to Easing Restrictions outlines which businesses can operate at which stage, and what customer limits apply on premises. All businesses will need to do some planning to ensure they keep their business, staff and their customers safe.
New information is available on the COVID-19 website to help businesses plan to re-open safely.
A COVID Safe Business Decision Tree (PDF) and Industry COVID Safe Plans - Frequently Asked Questions (PDF) are available to help businesses identify if they need a plan.
If you are a tourism or events business, we encourage you to look at the COVID Safe Planning for Tourism and Events Decision Tree (PDF) and Frequently Asked Questions about COVID Safe Plans (PDF).
