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:

Masks for Queensland

You must carry a face mask with you at all times when you leave home, unless you have a lawful reason not to.

  • 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.
