Brisbane has today been declared a COVID-19 ‘hot spot’ and from 5pm is entering a 3-day Lockdown.
Greater Brisbane will go into lockdown, while contact tracers work to ensure the UK strain of COVID-19 is not circulating in the community.
The lockdown is for greater Brisbane, which is Brisbane, Logan, Moreton Bay, Ipswich and Redlands and will commence at 5:00pm this afternoon.
Schools will close from tomorrow, but will continue for children of essential workers or vulnerable children.
People will only be able to leave their homes for four essential reasons including exercise, essential work, medical and compassionate reasons and shopping for essential items.
Masks will be mandatory in Greater Brisbane everywhere indoors (apart from your own home).
Restaurants and cafes can only serve takeaway.
These lockdown restrictions also apply to anyone who has been in the Greater Brisbane area since March 20, even if they are no longer in the area.
Restrictions are also being brought in for the rest of Queensland, including:
- Compulsory mask wearing for all public indoor settings across the state
- A limit of 30 people at household gatherings
- All patrons must be seated at hospitality venues
- Limited visitors to hospitals, aged care homes, disability care facilities and prisons
Masks are mandatory when entering any Team Transport Depot and all drivers must wear masks when entering any customer sites or exiting their vehicles.
Please get tested and self-isolate until you get your results if you are feeling unwell. Further updates will be provided as new information comes to hand.
