What new COVID advice means for you and your business

November 2022 Covid update Queensland3


The Queensland Government will on November 11 update advice on COVID, changing the alert status from green to amber (tier 1).

It means there are moderate rates of community transmission and Queensland is coming off a wave or may be entering a new wave.

The community should:

  • stay home if you're sick
  • keep up to date with your vaccinations
  • maintain good hygiene
  • take a rapid test (RAT) if you get COVID-19 symptoms
  • wear a mask if a place you're visiting asks you to
  • wear a mask
    • in healthcare settings
    • indoors, if you can't socially distance
    • on public transport
    • if you are older or medically at risk
    • if you're around people who are vulnerable to COVID-19
  • take a rapid test (RAT) every 2 days if someone in your household has COVID-19.

If you get COVID-19, you should:

  • register your RAT result
  • stay home until you're well again
  • wear a mask for 7 days after your test
  • avoid visiting hospitals, aged care or disability care for 7 days after your test
  • ask household members to closely monitor for symptoms.

See more details on the Queensland Government website.
