Ensuring your business has Industry COVID Safe Plans if you want to have more than 20 guests!
Queensland’s Roadmap to Easing Restrictions outlines which businesses can operate at which stage, and what customer limits apply on premises. All businesses will need to undertake some planning to ensure they keep their business, their staff and their customers safe.
For businesses that the Chief Health Officer has identified as having a high risk of transmission, a mandatory COVID Safe Checklist has been developed, and there will be mandatory COVID Safe training. High risk businesses include restaurants, cafés, beauty therapists and nail salons from Stage 1, and now extends to tattooists, tanning and spas from Stage 2 easing of restrictions.
If a high-risk business chooses to operate in line with an approved Industry COVID Safe Plan, then the checklist is not required. More information on Industry COVID Safe Plans and Checklists below.
For more information on record keeping obligations and collecting personal information under the public health directions please refer to the Factsheet for storing and collecting information.
All businesses should use the framework to be COVID safe.
COVID Safe checklists and factsheets
From Stage 1 easing of restrictions, COVID Safe checklists have been required for businesses that provide dining-in for customers, such as restaurants, cafes, pubs, RSLs, clubs, and hotels (food courts remain closed) and beauty therapy services. From Stage 2 easing of restrictions, this now extends to tattooists, tanning and spas:
- COVID Safe checklist for restaurants and cafes etc.
- COVID Safe checklist for beauty therapists, nail salons, tattooists, tanning and spas
- Voluntary COVID Safe checklist for Queensland businesses
- COVID Safe checklists and COVID Safe plans FAQs
- Fact sheet: dining-In
- Translated COVID Safe checklists.
If you do not offer these services, you do not need to complete a checklist. All businesses should, however, be following the work health and safety guidelines.
