Open houses given green light in Queensland
Attending open house inspections are now permitted in Queensland - under strict guidelines.
Blanket restrictions on the non-essential activities have been lifted without fanfare in the past few days by chief health officer Jeanette Young.
Under the changes, which came into effect on May 1, six people are now allowed at open house inspections, including the real estate agent, with no more than one person per four square metres.
Previously, all open house inspections were by private appointment only.
The state government has unveiled its intentions to ease restrictions on cafes and restaurants from next month in a bid to get the economy moving again after weeks of lockdown.
The easing of restrictions comes as some Queensland school students prepare to go back to the classroom on May 11.
The plan is, if coronavirus infection rates remain low, all students will be back at school on May 25.
