COVID-19 restrictions to ease in LGAs of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Logan and more from 4pm today

A number of Queensland local government areas (LGAs) will have restrictions eased from 4pm today in line with the rest of the state, after no locally acquired cases of COVID-19 were recorded overnight.

The LGAs of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Moreton Bay, Logan, Townsville and Palm Island will see some restrictions removed, allowing more people to gather at venues and permitting dancing in clubs.

On the advice of Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young, cafes and restaurants will return to one person per two square metres indoors and outdoors, and stadiums and events can have full capacity.

Up to 100 people can gather in homes, with no limit for people gathering in public spaces.

Visitors are once again permitted at aged care, correctional centres, hospitals and disability centres, and up to 200 people can attend funerals and weddings.

Some restrictions will remain, however, with Queenslanders still required to check-in at venues and wear masks where social distancing is not possible (like in shopping centres and on public transport).

“Because Queenslanders have done a great job, Dr Young has advised us this morning that those restrictions can ease,” Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.
