Brisbane Lockdown Lifted But Restrictions Remain

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

The lockdown in Brisbane will be lifted as of midday local time, with Queensland health officials confident they have contained a coronavirus outbreak stemming from a hospital.

Only one local case of COVID-19 was detected overnight, which was related to the existing clusters.

The original end time of the three-day Greater Brisbane shutdown was 5:00 pm.

Easter church services can go ahead with social distancing and mask-wearing.

A number of restrictions will remain in place for the entire state for the next two weeks.

Masks will be mandatory in public indoor spaces including shopping centres, public transport, and indoor workplaces.

Household gatherings will be capped at 30 people.

There will also be limitations on aged care, hospitals, disability care, and correctional facilities, with no personal visitors allowed until 12 noon on April 15, except for end-of-life visits.
