COVID-19 measures

In consultation with health authorities, the ECQ implemented a COVID-safe plan for all polling places and vote counting venues.

Returning Officers and supervisors are provided with guidance and resources to ensure all returning offices, polling places and vote counting venues are setup to protect voters, election staff and scrutineers from exposure to COVID-19. Measures implemented include:

  • training for election staff
  • actively maintaining social distancing
  • use of contact tracing registers
  • frequent cleaning
  • provision of hand sanitation facilities, and
  • use of daily checklists to ensure measures are maintained for the entire election period.

All measures are implemented based on advice from Queensland’s Chief Health Officer.
