#Easing of COVID-19 restrictions
14 April 2022
From 1am AEST Thursday 14 April 2022, the requirement to check-in and/or be fully vaccinated, will ease for the majority of venues and events in Queensland.
Venues include pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants; theme parks, casinos and cinemas; weddings; showgrounds; and galleries, libraries, museums and stadiums.
Although not specifically included in this list, theatres, arts, culture and live music venues will also no longer be subject to mandated vaccination and check in requirements. This is because, as with those settings listed, they are not vulnerable or high risk settings.
Vaccination and check-in requirements will continue for anyone visiting or working in vulnerable settings (hospitals, disability accommodation services and residential aged care) as well as for workers in high-risk settings including schools, childcare, prisons and airports.
What does this mean for Queensland Ballet activities and locations?
BEESLEY ST, WEST END
From 1am AEST Thursday 14 April 2022, you are no longer required to check-in or be fully vaccinated to access our Beesley Street studios and offices. Visitors may wish to continue to wear a mask whilst COVID case numbers remain high and when socially distancing isn’t possible.
QUEENSLAND BALLET ACADEMY, KELVIN GROVE
The Omicron strain of COVID-19 is spreading rapidly through school-aged children. Schools are considered to be high-risk and in need of an ongoing vaccination and check-in mandate.
Queensland’s vaccination rates among school-aged children remain significantly lower than the rest of the population. Teachers and school staff are also a vital workforce that we want to do everything we can to protect. Having them vaccinated helps to keep them safe and to reduce the likelihood of classes being interrupted or affected by staff absences.
Aspire '22 at Queensland Ballet Academy | 18 - 21 May, 2022 Please note that for the Academy's performance season of Aspire '22, the Academy will be operating outside school hours as a 'theatre', and is therefore not required to mandate vaccination and check-in for attending patrons.
Masks are not mandatory at QPAC however, we strongly recommend you take a mask with you to the theatre for use where physical distancing is not possible. QPAC is operating at 100% capacity under Queensland Government health directives, please be aware there may be patrons occupying the seats directly beside, behind or in front of you during a performance.
