The Greater Brisbane lockdown lifts at 12 noon today and a number of temporary safety measures will remain in place for all of Queensland.
The following restrictions will be in place for two weeks until 12 noon on Thursday 15 April 2021:
• You must continue to carry a mask with you whenever you leave home, and wear it in indoor venues
• Hospitality venues can open for seated eating and drinking only, and no dancing is allowed
• Private gatherings are restricted to 30 people
• Businesses can re-open with one person per 2m²
• 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 100% occupancy with ticketed or allocated seating or adhering to the one per 2m² rule
• Restrictions on aged care, hospitals, disability care and correctional facilities will apply with no personal visitors allowed during this period.
Thanks to the hard work of Queenslanders, Easter is good to go.
I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this mighty team effort.
The remaining restrictions are about protecting Queenslanders against further transmission of COVID-19.
Stay safe, Queensland.

From 12pm (midday) AEST Thursday 1 April 2021 to Thursday 15 April 2021, the state 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.
