COVID19 correctional centres update—return to stage 1

Arrangements for courts and correctional facilities

All correctional centres across Queensland have also lifted restrictions and returned to Stage 1 operations from 6 am Thursday 15 April .  With the reversion to Stage 1, visits to correctional centres recommence, and bookings for personal and professional visits to centres, including in person professional legal visits, will resume. 

Prisoners will continue to be produced for Court appearances where required, and will no longer be subject to COVID-19 isolation upon return to custody from Court, unless advised otherwise by Queensland Health personnel. 

The wearing of masks by visitors to Queensland correctional centres, including legal representatives, is strongly encouraged in circumstances where social distancing cannot be maintained, or as otherwise directed by Queensland Health. Health screening and temperature checks of approved visitors will continue.
