In force legislation
ALERT: COVID-19 modifications of laws
From the commencement of the COVID-19 Emergency Response Act 2020 (the ER Act) on 23 April 2020 until the COVID-19 legislation expiry day (30 April 2022), the ER Act and extraordinary regulations and statutory instruments made under that Act modified a significant number of Queensland laws. Affected legislation operated as modified, but the modifications did not amend the text of the law. Accordingly, point-in-time versions of legislation in force between 23 April 2020 and 30 April 2022 may be affected by the ER Act or by extraordinary regulations or statutory instruments that were in force at the same time. Extraordinary regulations made under the ER Act expired on 30 April 2022.
The Corrective Services Act 2006, chapter 6, part 15A, contains modifications that will expire on 31 October 2023.
The Transport Legislation (COVID-19 Emergency Response) Regulation 2020 modified transport regulations and expired on 30 April 2023.
