    Unvaccinated union officials have been left to move freely through Queensland hospitals despite the government introducing tough new restrictions limiting the visiting rights of patients.

    All visitors to Queensland hospital facilities since December 17 must be fully vaccinated, and those who are not have been warned they must apply for prior approval or they may not be allowed to enter.

    The Courier-Mail can reveal, however, unions have been given permission to bypass the process and send unvaccinated delegates into Queensland hospitals…

    Contained in the chief health officer’s direction is a clause giving union officials the power to enter a health facility “in response to an emergent need” regardless of whether they have been vaccinated.

    Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said the exemption would ensure the “ongoing continuity of health care” in Queensland hospitals.

    “We expect all regular hospital visitors to be vaccinated, however the health directives allow unvaccinated visitors in limited situations where it’s absolutely necessary,” she said.

    “This may include emergency responders, contractors carrying out essential repairs and union representatives when an emergency workplace health and safety issue arises.

    The union exemption is despite the state government on Tuesday restricting the number of people who can visit hospital wards.

    Just two people are now allowed per ward and only one person – aside from the patient – will be allowed in emergency departments.

    The government has also mandated that all frontline Queensland Health staff receive two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine or risk dismissal.

    Opposition Leader David Crisafulli slammed the union exemption as a double standard.

    “First this government was waving in football entourages while Queenslanders where locked out of the state and they’re at it again,” he said.

    “Queenslanders have done what’s been asked of them including missing out on precious time with loved ones in hospitals and they’ve gone and created special rules for their union mates that flies in the face of these sacrifices.

    “Any Queenslander who hasn’t been able to see a loved one in hospital throughout the pandemic will find this decision outrageous.”

    Queensland Health is unable to say how many unvaccinated union officials have entered hospitals since restrictions were introduced on December 17.

    A health spokesman said unvaccinated union representatives may enter a hospital, residential aged care facility, disability accommodation service or recreational venue in response to an emergency, but must alert the hospital to their entry and vaccination status as soon as possible.

    Unvaccinated union delegates are also permitted to enter places considered “high risk” including schools and corrective services facilities – along with emergency services and those undertaking compliance checks.

    Notice weak cuck Crisafulli doesn’t use the moment to come to the defence of unvaccinated people – banned from seeing their wives, husbands, brothers and sisters and parents with broken bones and disease riddled bodies in hospital as as a revolting affront to decency and common sense itself.

    Despite Covid positive doctors and nurses now officially approved to swan around hospitals, and all the rest we already know – so ridiculous has this moment become.

    No he wants unvaccinated union men banned too. That’s his angle.

    Yes. This is the castrated imbecile who went on Sky with Alan Jones last year to faux-strongly insist he would NOT amend or withdraw Labor’s VAD provision that allows killer doctors to bump off people in private hospitals. Nor would he amend or withdraw the provision that compels conscientiously objecting doctors to recommend a killer to the VAD-curious. His angle was that a True Conservative does not interfere with such a law, however bad it might be.

    Agree Twostix.
    The useless prick should be pushing for all restrictions to be lifted.
    Pathetic.

    But remember, we’re all in this together!

    Morrison’s lowest act must be loosening visa requirements to allow thousands of overseas scab workers to replace the loyal local nurses sacked because they wouldn’t take the vaccine.
    And the unions never said a thing.
