  • Face masks are to be worn while an aircraft is in Queensland airspace.
  • Transport drivers driving passengers to and from quarantine hotels are to wear a mask while transporting passengers.
  • People who have been directed to quarantine are to wear a face mask from the time they leave the airport until they arrive at their allocated room at a quarantine hotel.
  • Face masks will not be mandatory for children under the age of 12, for persons with a particular medical condition or disability, or if it is not safe to do so.
