Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Queensland Government has released its Queensland’s Public Health and Social Measures linked to vaccination status – a plan for 80% and beyond (the Measures). These measures are supported by the Public Health and Social Measures linked to vaccination status Direction (No. 2).

Only fully vaccinated staff and patrons are permitted to enter government owned galleries, museums, national and state institutions and historic sites and state government libraries. The Measures also clearly state that all theatres, whether Government, Council or privately owned, can only be attended by individuals who are fully vaccinated.

Some other businesses must also restrict entry to unvaccinated staff and patrons. For the arts and cultural sector, these businesses include:

  • Entertainment venues (e.g. stadiums, concert venues, theatres, auditoriums, cinemas, convention centres, show grounds, theme parks, outdoor amusement parks, tourism experiences, arcades, indoor play centres)
  • Indoor events (e.g. cultural festival and expos)
  • Outdoor events with dancing (e.g. music or dance festivals)

Further information and resources have been developed to support this directive. These include:
