Queensland has eased its COVID-19 restrictions, with caps on home gatherings increased and the number of people allowed at weddings and funerals boosted.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says no new virus cases were recorded in the community and one was recorded in hotel quarantine after 13,591 tests in the 24 hours to 6am on Friday.
She says that means the state can further ease COVID-19 restrictions.
"It's now been around 20 days since we've had an case active in the community," the premier told reporters.
"Queenslanders have done a great job protecting each other, so in some further good news today, we are going to be easing our restrictions even more."
Up to 100 people are now allowed at home gatherings and 200 people are allowed at weddings and funerals, or one person per two square metres.
The same social-distancing limits are allowed in cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs, while stadiums and venues with ticketed seats can operate at 100 per cent capacity.
However, Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said facemasks will still be mandatory indoors and outdoors where people are unable to socially-distance.
"It is important that we just maintain some restrictions," Dr Young said.
"Just wear masks when you can't socially distance, particularly indoors, the risk is far less outdoors, unless you're in very big numbers."
The state's delivered another 20,447 vaccine doses overnight, with 48.25 per cent of eligible Queenslanders having received a first jab and 29.45 per cent fully vaccinated.
Deputy Premier Steven Miles said his NSW counterpart had reached out to discuss how to make life easier for communities impacted by the state border closure.
An earlier offer to move checkpoints south to temporarily include the border town of Tweed Heads within Queensland was declined by NSW.
"We certainly welcome this change of heart, this approach from the deputy premier of NSW to work with us, and of course we will work with them to put in place whatever measures we can to both keep the border safe, but also minimise its impact," Mr Miles said.
Meanwhile, the Commonwealth announced that Multiplex would develop an 800-bed quarantine facility at Pinkenba, near Brisbane Airport, with construction to begin shortly.
It comes one day after the state government started work on a 1000-bed facility at Wellcamp, near Toowoomba, which doesn't have federal support.
The Queensland government supports both projects, saying the facilities will allow the state to replace its inadequate hotel quarantine system, which has been the source of a number of COVID-19 outbreaks.
