Date format for strapi.db.query?

When trying to folter for a date, providing the date just like it’s found in the DB table doesn’t work:

await strapi.db.query('api::stuff.stuff').findOne({
            where: {
                validFrom: {
                    $eq: '2024-04-01'

Erroring with:

InvalidTimeFormat: Invalid date```
The field's type is set to `date`.
