Greater Brisbane Lockdown
From 12pm today, Thursday, 1 April 2021 the lockdown in Greater Brisbane is lifted with ongoing restrictions in place for 2 weeks.
Restrictions for Queensland
From 12pm (midday) AEST Thursday 1 April 2021 to Thursday 15 April 2021, restrictions will ease in greater Brisbane. All of Queensland will be subject to the same restrictions:
- you must carry a face mask at all times and wear indoors, unless you have a lawful reason not to
- gatherings in private residences (homes and accommodation) are limited to 30 persons in total
- you can leave your home for any purpose. You can travel anywhere in Australia. Please note other states and territories may have restrictions in place that prevent you from travelling to them
- visitors to aged care facilities, disability accommodation services, hospitals and correctional facilities are restricted across the state
- restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs can only open for seated eating and drinking, no standing allowed.
- Hospitality businesses must keep an electronic customer register.
- Customers must check into venues and provide their contact details in case we need to contact you.
Masks for Queensland
- You must wear a mask in indoor spaces.
- It is strongly recommended you wear a mask when outdoors if you are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people, such as busy walkways and thoroughfares.
- Masks do not need to be worn in some circumstances, including children under 12 years, if you have certain medical conditions, and in workplaces where it is not safe to do so.
- You can remove your mask to consume food or drink.
Queensland wide restrictions relative to bodies corporate:
- Masks must be worn in indoor places including gyms, community rooms and common property with one person per 2m², as per the usual restrictions up to 30 people (as considered a non-public space)
- Strata Community Association (Qld) recommends for all other outdoor common property, these can operate under the recommendation that masks be worn if 1.5m social distancing cannot be maintained, but are not required. While up to 500 people are permitted in public outdoor spaces, SCA (Qld) considers body corporate private property and therefore recommends best practice of no more than 30 people per gathering, or 1 person per 2m² when not gathering (i.e. passing through common property).
- SCA (Qld) advises that best practice is to wear masks while moving around indoor pools and gyms but while doing strenuous exercise, masks can be taken off. Masks are not required while swimming.
- Gatherings in private homes are restricted to 30 people
Restrictions are Queensland wide and apply to all Queenslanders and anyone who visits the state up until 15 April 2021.
