The letter provides details of the Queensland Health initiative to stand up an interim management model for Christmas and early new year period utilising Calvary-Medibank Home Support Services.

Queensland Health have agreed to use the Federal Health Departments “Work permissions and restrictions framework for workers in health care settings” document.

This framework supports safe decision making when determining whether to place work permissions/restrictions, independent of quarantine, on a worker after a COVID-19 exposure in a health care setting in the context of an outbreak and community transmission of COVID-19.

RACGP Queensland recommends members pay particular attention to table 1 and table 4 in this document.
