Workers in the Greater Brisbane area have been asked to stay at home where possible as the city enters what is hoped will be the final day of the snap lockdown announced on Friday.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is expected to provide an update on how the lockdown is progressing at 9am.
She thanked Queenslanders for largely complying with the strict measures including the mandatory use of masks in public.
“This has been a really great response from people in the Greater Brisbane community and we need to keep it up, so Monday 6pm is the day and we’ll be updating you again tomorrow morning at nine o’clock to see how our cases have gone overnight,” she said on Sunday.
Queensland has been on high alert after a cleaner at one of Brisbane’s quarantine hotels was initially diagnosed with the UK virus strain.
