Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced the end of some of the last remaining COVID-19 restrictions in the state.

From June 30, COVID-19 vaccinations will no longer be required for visitors to residential aged care, disability accommodation and corrective service facilities.

The vaccine mandate will also be revoked in schools, early childhood education, outside school care, kindergartens, family day care, police watch houses, youth detention centres, and airports.

Decisions on mandatory vaccinations will instead be made by employers.

Mandatory vaccines are still required for workers in healthcare, hospitals, aged care and disability care.

Additionally, the public health direction requiring post-arrival testing for those travelling to Queensland from international locations will be removed.
