The mask mandate has been extended for another week in the south-east as Queensland's border will close to people from New South Wales from 1am Friday.
Acting Premier Steven Miles made the announcement Thursday despite no new cases of COVID-19 recorded in Queensland overnight.
Mr Miles said masks will still need to be worn for seven more days in 11 council areas around south-east Queensland, but other restrictions will be eased including allowing up to 100 people in homes and removing the limit for people gathering outside.
Hospitality venues will also be allowed to have one person per 2 square metres while funerals will also increase from 100 to 200.
Mr Miles said the border closure was the same as currently in place in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania though there would be a border zone from the Clarence Valley, west to the South Australian border with checkpoints at key locations.
The border zone does not include Coffs Harbour which has been defined as a risk spot.
New South Wales will be a declared hotspot for four weeks though the timing will be reviewed regularly.
