Qld COVID-19: Major stimulus, while restrictions ease, in a week of one new case

Published:

The Queensland Government’s plan for ongoing recovery from COVID-19 has continued this week, as another day of no new cases is recorded and active cases fall below five.

There are now four active cases, 1053 recovered and a total of 1066.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said only one new case had been confirmed in a week when a major new phase of economic recovery stimulus was announced, along with the easing of restrictions on aged care, sporting crowds and funerals.

The second phase of the plan to Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs includes almost half a billion dollars to support our most vulnerable and to create jobs for tradies.

COVID-Safe site-specific plans have been approved for Stadiums Queensland venues this weekend, allowing for crowds of up to 2000 people.

And aged care residents can have two visitors at a time, including children, after restrictions were further eased this week, while up to 100 people can now attend funerals.

Also announced this week:

  • Two major productions to start again this month as the screen industry starts to recover.
  • Boarding school students can return next term, after some restrictions are eased.
  • More Rural Economic Development Grants given the impact of COVID-19 on agriculture.
  • A COVID-Safe plan will ensure Queenslanders can vote safely in October.
