Four senior ministers step out of Victorian politics; Airport chaos as the holidays begin; EU approves Ukraine’s candidacy for membership; Queensland calls for time for most vaccine mandates; Qantas hands out $5,000 bonus to workers

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced the end of some of the last remaining COVID-19 restrictions in the state.

As of June 30, vaccinations against COVID-19 will no longer be required for visitors to residential aged care, disabled accommodation and remedial service facilities.

The vaccine mandate will also be revoked in schools, early childhood education, out-of-school care, preschools, nurseries, police stations, juvenile detention centers and airports.

Decisions about mandatory vaccinations are instead made by employers.

Mandatory vaccines are still required for healthcare workers, hospitals, aged care and disabled care.

In addition, the public health direction requiring post-arrival testing for those traveling to Queensland from international locations will be removed.
