Inside classrooms during the Covid-19 pandemic at Redcliffe State High School.

Essential workers' children learning and practising social distancing.

Gourmet food producers in the Moreton Bay "fruit bowl" area have been badly impacted by the closures of their main customers: restaurants and cafes.

Some have had to let fruit fall off trees and rot.

Also they don't need fruit pickers, so these backpackers don't have the ability to earn money.

Queensland has another zero cases day and the numbers stalls at 1034.

Today more than 200 passengers left 14 days mandatory quarantine from a Brisbane Hotel. That was the last flight from Nepal two weeks ago. Queensland Health cleared all of them. Many of them don’t call Queensland home, therefore it will be another hassle to reach their home destination.

Photo 1: Siyuan from Melbourne. There is no flight, therefore she hires a car and doing a road trip. She will sleep in the car and she can’t wait for it.

Photo 2: Quentin from Perth. He can’t go to Perth as WA Authorities didn’t give him a permit to go to WA. He stays in Brisbane at one of his friend’s house and wants to explore the State. That could cost him a $1300 fine.

Photo 3: Dave from NSW. He and more travellers together hire a bus and drive to NSW. He doesn’t know whether they need to take another 14 days quarantine at the border.

Photo 4: Ngawang from country Queensland. He hires a car and drives home.
