South-east Queenslanders are required to continue carrying a face mask with them at all times unless they have a lawful reason not to. They must also be worn on public transport and in ride-shares and indoors, unless you can stay at least 1.5m away from other people.

The decision on opening the vaccination to 12-15 year-olds came after the Federal Government’s expert vaccine panel made the recommendation today.
