The Lockdown for Greater Brisbane has been lifted after two and a half days.

The snap decision to shut multiple South East Queensland Council areas down came after a number of concerning community clusters.

But with record testing numbers and only one case of local and traceable transmission today, Queensland’s Premier and Chief Health Officer have lifted the lockdown.

“Easter is good to go,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

While we are free to leave our homes for non-essential reasons now, certain restrictions still apply for the next 14 days:

  • You must carry a mask with you whenever you leave home and wear it at indoor venues
  • Hospitality venues can open for seated eating and drinking only with no dancing allowed
  • Private gatherings cannot exceed 30 people
  • Businesses can re-open with one person per two square metres
  • Outdoor events can go ahead with a COVID-safe plan, but masks must be worn if social distancing isn’t possible
  • Church services will be allowed to go ahead with 100% occupancy as long as it is ticketed, seating is allocated or there is only one person per two square metres
  • No personal visitors are allowed into aged care, hospitals, disability care and correctional facilities.
