    Media advice: QPS COVID-19 update – April 27

    The Queensland Police Service (QPS) is providing ongoing support to Queensland Health as part of a co-ordinated whole of government response to the COVID-19 situation.

    Under the provisions of the Public Health Act, police officers can take enforcement action against anyone who is failing to comply with public health directions set out by the Chief Health Officer.

    An integral part of the QPS response is to ensure compliance with directions particularly around self-isolation, state borders, non-essential business activity, home confinement, movement and gathering.

    Officers can also issue on the spot fines of $1334 for individuals and $6,672 for corporations which fail to abide by the health directions.
