give each other a hand

After campaigning for a common sense approach towards the use of the X Pass, the Queensland Trucking Association (QTA) says Queensland Health has approved its use from today.

The Queensland Freight Protocol has now been updated, so heavy vehicle drivers in a truck can use the Border Zone Entry X Pass to enter Queensland if they are EITHER a Queensland resident or a border zone resident entering ONLY from the NSW Border Zone and have not been in a hotspot in the past 14 days and ARE NOT not required to comply with the mandatory requirements.

The QTA shared the following information:
