AUSTRALIA: QLD pauses hotel quarantine for two weeks
Premier Palaszczuk has announced QLD's hotel quarantine system is at capacity and from noon on Wednesday, 25 August 2021, hotel quarantine arrivals would be paused for two weeks. People with compassionate exemptions and medical exemptions are not included in this, but people who are relocating from other states will need to wait. No one currently in a declared hotspot will be permitted to enter QLD’s hotel quarantine for two weeks, except for those with exemptions such as compassionate reasons. New arrivals and QLD residents will have to reapply for a border pass.
