Queensland removes last remaining COVID-19 restrictions, unvaxed educators now back

The Queensland Government will remove some of its last COVID-19 restrictions from Wednesday, freeing up unvaccinated early childhood education and care (ECEC) professionals to return to work. 

 

Effective 1am 30 June 2022, the high-risk worker COVID-19 vaccine mandate in schools, early childhood education, outside school care, kindergartens, family day care, police watch houses, youth detention centres and airports will be revoked.

 

Employers in ECEC will still be able to make decisions at their level in relation to vaccines, meaning some ECEC services will be mandated to have vaccinations in order to work, however this will be an employer rather than Government decision. 

 

The public health direction requiring post arrival testing for those travelling into Queensland from international locations has also been removed.
