Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has today announced that the 3-day lockdown for the Greater Brisbane area will end at 6pm on Monday night, in a huge win for Queenslanders.
The decision to end the lockdown comes after the state recorded no new locally acquired cases overnight.
In a press conference on Monday morning, Palaszczuk announced that the Greater Brisbane area will end their lockdown at 6pm tonight but *will* have a number of restrictions in place until January 22nd.
The new restrictions include a mask mandate for most indoor social situations.
You don’t need to wear a mask when exercising outside if you’re able to socially distance, however, you *do* need to wear on at indoor gyms.
Additionally, the Premier announced a number of restrictions for businesses, such as 1 person per 4 square metres for indoor venues.
Residents in the Greater Brisbane area will be able to have 20 people in the home or in public places for social gatherings.
Additionally, weddings and funerals are capped at 100 people, while indoor concert venues, theatres and outdoor stadiums will run at a 50% capacity.
Restrictions on visiting hospitals, aged care, disability accommodation and prisons will remain.
Interestingly, the cricket *will* go ahead, with the Gabba running at 50% capacity, with masks mandatory when walking around, but not while sitting in your seat.
All restrictions will remain in place until 1am Friday January 22, but are obviously subject to change as the situation changes.
