Queensland will be further protected from coronavirus, with new travel rules for residents returning from interstate.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has said that residents will need a permit from midnight tonight (Friday) to come back into Queensland, whether by road or air.
As well, any Queenslander returning from a virus hotspot will have to quarantine for 14 days.
“So, a very strong message to Queenslanders, let’s do the right thing, stay in Queensland and stay in your suburb,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
The Premier said the latest statistics were again encouraging, with ten new cases for a total of 953, of whom 372 have recovered.
“So let’s not put all of our good work at risk. You should not be travelling,” she said.
Also, the state government has announced that a new overall COVID-19 website has been launched: covid19.qld.gov.au
