Chief Health Officer public health directions
During a public health emergency, the Chief Health Officer can issue Public Health Directions to assist in containing, or to respond to, the spread of COVID-19 within the community.
On 2 October 2020, Queensland’s declared public health emergency for COVID-19 was extended to 11:59pm on Thursday 31 December 2020.
This means active Public Health Directions with an end date of 2 October 2020 have been automatically extended until 11:59pm on Thursday 31 December 2020. Directions will be progressively updated to reference the new date of 31 December 2020. To Read Click Here

Audience Member Dancing
The Live Music Artists work in accordance with current Public Health Directions and will encourage members of the public to dance in outdoor areas.
Live Artist Gig Safe Wellness Practice
A Strong Wellness Practice for all Live Music Artists means that their immune systems are strong and they have wellness practices in place to ensure they do not perform if they feel unwell. Keeping healthy while exposed to a Hotel or Club audience is a key element of the COVID Gig Safe Plan.
