NOOSA RIVER – As part of creating safety for all on our river, MSQ have welcomed SAM (Speed Awareness Monitor) signs which as on the roads, give an instant digital read of vessel speeds to support safe boating behaviour. The signs will also record data to help MSQ monitor its effectiveness and provide information for future compliance activities. Thankyou to Minister Bailey and the TMR team for the new addition to our efforts. Skippers look for the ‘smiley’ face, and if it’s red, slow down! 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
At last the details have been released regarding the strengthened borders that took effect today in response to the Victorian outbreaks. Have translated some of the queries that have come to our office so far, and if we have missed anything or anyone, can you let us know over the weekend via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can obtain answers for Monday night’s update?👍
ENTRY INTO QLD – You can only enter QLD if you are an exempt person or are granted an exemption from the Chief Health Officer (CHO). If you are eligible to enter QLD, you must complete a Border Declaration Pass before you come. You will also have to quarantine in a government mandated hotel, at your own expense, if you • Have been overseas in the last 14 days • Have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 in the last 14 days • Have been to a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days (All Victoria is currently a hotspot) • Have COVID-19 • Have had COVID-19 symptoms within the last 14 days
QUARANTINE EXEMPTIONS - There are exemptions from the quarantine requirements, and you need to read the full information online, however below are a couple of examples of exemptions: • If you are a ‘Specialist worker’ – please read the full information available to determine if you are eligible. • If you arrive into QLD by air and you transfer directly to another flight to leave QLD. • If you have completed a min of 14 days of government mandated quarantine in another state without showing symptoms or having a positive test, have travelled straight from the quarantine to an airport to depart the hotspot and provide evidence as per full information online. • If you have flown via an airport in a hotspot (transferring flights), without leaving the confines of the airport. Eg. Adelaide – Melbourne – Brisbane
It is vitally important that you read all relevant information on the websites carefully, as there are requirements such as for those entering from hotspots under exemptions to keep records of close contacts for 14 days as well other important information to be aware of. As well if you are travelling, stay on alert for any other states that identify hotspots, so that you can return home quickly if need be.
