The COVID-19 Emergency Response Act 2020 and extraordinary regulations and statutory instruments made under that Act modify a significant number of Queensland laws. Affected legislation operates as modified but the modification does not amend the text of the law. Accordingly, affected in force legislation does not show the text of the law as modified by this Act or other modifications. All modifications expire on 31 December 2020.
A public health emergency currently exists in Queensland in relation to the novel coronavirus disease. Public health directions issued by the Chief Health Officer under the Public Health Act 2005 are published on the public health directions page on Queensland Health’s website <here>.
