is donaldson law an “essential business”?

The Home Confinement Direction issued by Queensland’s Chief Health Officer on 29 March 2020 (stay at home and 2 person gathering rule), excludes work in an “essential business, activity or undertaking” that cannot reasonably be performed from the person’s principal place of residence.
