Due to the great work by Queenslanders in responding to the recent lockdown, we can now lift the increased restrictions that have been in place for Greater Brisbane. From 1:00 AM AEST 22 January 2021, if there is no community transmission, the Greater Brisbane region will be subject to the same restrictions as the rest of the state.
You are strongly encouraged to continue to carry a face mask with you at all times, to provide added protection if you are in a situation where you cannot maintain social distancing. When attending a big event, in a shopping centre or travelling on public transport, we strongly encourage you to wear a mask – especially when entering, exiting or moving through areas where lots of people are gathered.
Face masks remain mandatory at all times in the following situations:
Face masks alone will not protect you from COVID-19. Social distancing is the gold standard of COVID-19 prevention methods, as well as washing your hands regularly.
You can have 100 people gather in public outdoor spaces, and 50 people can gather at a private property – this number includes those who live with you.
