Masks (DGs Letter) Residents of the locked down areas must wear masks indoors, except at home, including in ride shares, on public transport and in workplaces. For the rest of Queensland, masks should be worn while indoors, except at home.  The protocols surrounding mask wearing at schools have not changed, therefore, staff are not required to wear masks when with students but should consider wearing masks in places where adults gather, for instance in staffrooms, if they cannot socially distance.
