A vaccination status plan – 80% and beyond

Queensland’s public health and social measures linked to vaccination status – a plan for 80% and beyond outlines a range of measures that will allow the lives of vaccinated Queenslanders to return to normal once the state reaches 80 % of full dose.

A plan for the borders of Queensland

The plan details changes to domestic and international travel to Queensland when Queensland reaches 70%, 80% and then 90% of the eligible population fully immunized.

Requirements for travelers coming interstate (including reported COVID-19 hotspots) and overseas at each stopover are outlined in the plan. Opening Queensland’s borders will only be possible if Queenslanders protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated.

What a crowd! The weather was so beautiful on Saturday December 11th.

The CCLU was invited to the Logan City Christmas Carols held on the Logan Campus of Griffith University.

It was one of the biggest events we have ever seen with so many families with home cooked food and snacks having a wonderful time.

It was great to be a part of the celebration with songs, dances and kids having fun on the rides, not to mention the variety of delicious food and drinks from different stalls.

Many families also attended the Christmas show at Beenleigh Court yard, although it was only a small gathering it was always nice to see these families and the community enjoyed the performance of Step Right Dance and the screening of the animated film “Elliot The Littlest Reindeer”. on the big screen.
