COVID-19

Current as at 21 September 2022.

Logan City Council facilities and services operate in line with Queensland Health’s ‘roadmap to easing restrictions’.

Council’s top priority is the health and safety of our community, customers and staff.

Everyone is encouraged to maintain social distancing and good hygiene habits.

Some guidelines have changed in relation to mask wearing and isolation periods. Find the latest information on the Queensland Health website

Masks

In accordance with Queensland Health guidelines, masks are no longer recommended for indoors and are not required on public transport, in a taxi, rideshare vehicle or commercial shuttle. This includes while waiting on a platform, at a stop, taxi rank or pick-up area.

Face masks are also no longer required on domestic flights.

They are still required for high-risk settings such as public and private hospitals, aged care facilities and disability accommodation services.

Face masks are also required anyone who has tested positive to COVID-19, is a close contact or has symptoms.

For more information visit Masks.

Wearing a mask at any time, or in other settings, remains a personal choice. Masks are recommended if you cannot social distance. 

This means you will no longer need to wear a mask at Council facilities, but you are welcome to keep doing so if you feel more comfortable.

Children under 12 years and people affected by a medical condition or disability do not have to wear a face mask. 

Attending venues and events

There is no longer any requirement to check-in and be fully vaccinated to attend a range of venues and events such as pubs, clubs, cafes, restaurants, theme parks, cinemas, weddings, showgrounds, stadiums and government-owned galleries, libraries and museums.

These changes also apply to Council facilities such as Logan Art Gallery and Mayes Cottage, Beenleigh Events Centre and other function venues, indoor entertainment venues including the Logan Entertainment Centre, ticketed outdoor entertainment activities including music festivals and some KRANK school holiday and Active and Healthy activities (program providers will inform attendees of any requirements).

From 1.00am, Thursday, 30 June 2022, there is no COVID-19 vaccination requirement for visiting a vulnerable group.

Visitor restrictions still apply for vulnerable settings which include public and private hospitals; aged care facilities; disability accommodation services and prisons. Masks must be worn while in indoor spaces of vulnerable settings.

Visiting a vulnerable setting is not allowed if you:

  • have COVID-19
  • recently had COVID-19 and it has been 5 days or less since your isolation period ended
  • are a close contact, unless in exceptional or compassionate circumstances
