The three-day lockdown ends for LGAs today except Brisbane and Moreton Bay.
The snap lockdown has been extended for 24 hours for Brisbane and Moreton Bay as a positive case came to light throughout last night. Previously, the mother and daughter had moved extensively throughout the area, visiting a market at West End, a Greek Orthodox community centre and several retailers in the CBD.
The extension aims to give contract tracers sufficient time to follow up, identify and contact any new possible contacts. Again, we’re hoping that the snap lockdown will end as soon as possible. For now, it is scheduled to end at 6pm on Saturday 3 July.
People living in these areas only have four valid reasons to leave their home. They will be able to undertake essential work, buy essential supplies such as food and medicine, look after vulnerable people and exercise with members of their household or one other person. Masks are also mandatory when leaving your home.
The remaining LGAs that were in lockdown come out of lockdown at 6pm on Friday 2 June. However, some restrictions remain in place. To view these restrictions, visit the Queensland government website.
