As we start to get back out there, we need everyone to be COVID safe by washing your hands, keeping your distance and having the COVIDSafe app.

How to stop yourself catching and spreading germs while travelling

Covid Safe Poster

(Advice courtesy Queensland Health)

  • If you feel sick, stay home.
  • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested.
  • Consider getting the flu shot.
  • Make hygiene your number one priority when travelling.
  • Practice social distancing – stay 1.5m away from other people (people from same household groups don’t need to distance from each other).
  • Good hand hygiene – wash hands regularly with soap and water and use alcohol-based sanitiser.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Pack tissues, hand sanitiser and disinfecting wipes with you to use while out and about.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or bent elbow when coughing or sneezing.
  • If flying, go contactless wherever you can by booking and checking-in online.
  • General safe travel tips – slip, slop, slap, seek and slide; eat a well-balanced diet; stay hydrated; plan stops on road trips.

How will I know if the businesses I’m staying at/travelling with/touring with are operating safely?

  • All businesses must adhere to social distancing requirements. The 1.5m distancing between people is a shared responsibility between businesses and customers (people from the same household do not need to observe 1.5m distancing from each other, but must keep 1.5m distance from other people/groups of people).
  • All businesses in Queensland are required to have a Work Health and Safety (WHS) Plan in place which addresses COVID-19 safety. You can request to see a copy of this plan if you would like to.
  • Businesses at ‘high-risk’ of transmission (such as restaurants, cafe and beauty therapists) must either comply with a COVID-19 Checklist or the approved Industry Plan, and they must display the checklist or compliance declaration.
  • Businesses who are operating beyond the baseline restrictions outlined in Queensland’s roadmap to easing restrictions must be operating in compliance with an approved Industry Plan.
  • Businesses may also choose to opt into the COVID-Clean business module based on the National Quality Tourism Framework, as well as the COVID-Ready Program being delivered by the Australian Tourism Export Council. Once businesses have completed the module they may display the COVID-Clean and/or COVID-Ready logos.
