From 6pm, 4 March 2022 restrictions will ease.

  • Masks will no longer be required indoors, except in hospitals, residential aged care, disability accommodation, prisons, public transport, airports and on planes.
  • Restrictions at funerals will be lifted and there will no longer be a cap on the number of people you can have in your home.
  • Density limits will be scrapped in food courts, hairdressers, weddings, funerals, gyms, private venues, and universities.
  • Schools will be allowed to host assemblies and excursions, while restrictions on visitors to schools are also lifting.
  • Wearing a mask, washing your hands and social distancing are all proven, effective ways to protect yourself and others.
  • While many restrictions are easing you are still encouraged to protect yourself and others by wearing a mask where you see fit.
  • Outpatient appointments are also set to restart statewide from Monday 28 February, initially focusing on the most urgent matters.

All non-urgent outpatient appointments were postponed or delivered by telehealth early last month to help the hospital system manage the Omicron peak.

Tens of thousands of public outpatient appointments were delayed, causing concern among some that there could be adverse health consequences.
