COVID 19  Update: 14 December 2021

The Queensland Government has announced that from 17 December, unvaccinated people will be unable to attend hospitality venues such as hotels, pubs, clubs, taverns, bars, restaurants, or cafes. This includes patrons, employees, and contractors. There will be no capacity restrictions for these areas.

Please be aware that unvaccinated members and guests can still play golf,

but will be unable to access the hospitality portion of the business, unless they have a valid medical exemption (contraindication)

The details have been outlined in the Public Health and Social Measures Linked to Vaccination Status Direction (‘Direction’) from the Acting Chief Health Officer. This Direction is made under the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld) and therefore is made in accordance with a law of Queensland and must be followed. The Direction will take effect at 5 am on Friday, 17 December 2021.

 

The Direction can be found here:

Who must be vaccinated?

All people entering and remaining in the venue’s bar, restaurant and/or cafe areas aged 16 years and over will need to be fully vaccinated. This includes patrons, employees and contractors who must all check in using the Check-In Qld app. A person is considered fully vaccinated when they have had two doses of a TGA approved vaccine. A person with a medical exemption to being vaccinated (a medical contraindication) can also enter and is considered the same as a vaccinated person.

  

Checking-in and providing proof of vaccination or medical exemption (contraindication)

A business operator must collect contact information, proof of vaccination or evidence of medical contraindication from all staff, guests and patrons when entering the venue by using the Check-In Qld app.

 

Proof of vaccination

Proof of vaccination verifies that a person is fully vaccinated. They must show either a printed or electronic form before entering the venue.   There are 3 different types of proof available: a COVID-19 digital certificate an immunisation history statement (IHS) an International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate for overseas travel. The COVID-19 vaccination certificate can be viewed or printed through: Medicare Online via MyGov Express Plus Medicare mobile app My Health Record Exemption from COVID-19 vaccination The persons who are exempt from getting a COVID-19 vaccination include those who have medical contraindications.  A person who cannot be vaccinated must show evidence of contraindication. This is a medical certificate stating that a person is exempt from getting a COVID-19 vaccination. This can be downloaded from the Australian Immunisation Register. A legally qualified medical practitioner is required to complete the medical exemption form and record this on the Australian Immunisation Register.   A person that has evidence of a medical contraindication will be treated as if they are fully vaccinated and may be permitted to enter and remain in venues.
