Greater Brisbane to Exit Lockdown

Monday, January 11th, 2021
Brisbane Southbank

Brisbane’s lockdown is ending at 6 pm on Monday night, but masks will be mandatory at public indoor venues for the next ten days.

Queensland recorded no new locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the most recent reporting period, out of 18,904 tests.

People in Greater Brisbane will need to carry a mask on them at all times and wear them at public indoor venues until January 22nd.

Places where mask-wearing will be mandatory include: supermarkets, shopping centres, hospitals, aged care facilities, cinemas and indoor recreation venues.

Masks will also be mandatory when travelling on public transport, buses, or ride share vehicles.

Masks won’t be required when driving a personal car or when exercising.

Gatherings are restricted to 20 people in homes and public spaces.

Weddings and funerals can have up to 100 people, and dancing is allowed at weddings without restrictions.

So long as there’s no community transmission over the next ten days, things will return to normal.
