Qld COVID-19 – Sunday April 26 – Restrictions to ease as recoveries increase

Published:

Some restrictions will be eased and some national parks will partially re-open as three new cases are confirmed along with a big increase in the proportion of recovered cases.

There are now 98 active cases with 926 recoveries and six deaths for a total of 1030.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queenslanders were doing a great job of listening and following directions which was flattening of the curve.

“So today I can announce some good news after discussions with the Chief Health Officer,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“From midnight Friday, we will lift some of the stay-at-home restrictions.*

“But can I say, this is a very small step that we need the public to 100 per cent co-operate with because if we do see mass gatherings, I will not hesitate to clamp back down.”

Also today:

  • Plans from two sporting codes had been forwarded to the Chief Health Officer for advice.

“I’m sure everyone would like to see sport resume but it needs to be compliant with health advice and National Cabinet will consider key principles next Friday,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“There is a willingness for everyone to make something happen, but it has to be safe.”

  • The Premier said state and federal tourism campaigns after COVID-19 needed to be safely worked through.

“We know how important tourism is for Queensland so it’s front and centre of our work,” she said.
