CLICK HERE to read about “Vaccination requirements for workers in high risk settings.”

Extract: If you manage a setting where only vaccinated people may work, and are experiencing critical workforce shortages, you can permit a worker who is unvaccinated to enter, work in, or provide services in the facility for a short period, such as three months…This allows you time to recruit or make alternative arrangements to ensure there are enough vaccinated workers to avoid ongoing worker shortages.

In addition, a free online TAFE Queensland training course is available to implement the new measures and manage the entry of customers.

This new micro-credential explains what the new restrictions mean and how people can prove their vaccination status. Businesses will need to display the vaccination requirements and use their best efforts to ask for evidence of vaccination from customers at the time of check-in.  Business owners and staff are not expected to be the police – if compliance issues arise, the Queensland Police should be called.

Queenslanders can link their COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate to the Check In Qld app –
