Greater Brisbane three-day lockdown

by jgrey

Please be advised that due to the three-day lockdown coming into effect at 5pm today, Monday March 29, the Bowls Queensland office in Enoggera will be closed. However, you can still call us at (07) 3354 0777 or email admin@bowlsqld.org as the staff will be working from home and available.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the following this morning (Monday, March 29):

“Greater Brisbane will go into a three-day lockdown and restrictions will come into place across Queensland after cases of COVID-19 transmission were detected in the community. From 5pm today, residents in the local government areas of Brisbane, Ipswich, Moreton Bay, Logan and Redlands can only leave home for one of these four reasons:

1. To buy essentials such as groceries or medications

2. Work or study if you can’t do either from home

3. Exercise in your local area

4. Healthcare or to provide help, care or support.

Cafés, pubs and restaurants will be open only for take-away service. Schools in the locked down areas will remain open for children of essential workers. For the rest of Queensland, private gatherings are restricted to 30 people. Everywhere in Queensland, you must carry a mask with you whenever you leave home. Wear it in indoor spaces, including public transport, taxis and rideshares. To keep our most vulnerable Queenslanders safe, aged care, correctional centres, hospitals and disability service providers will close to visitors across the state. The restrictions will be reviewed on Wednesday evening.These measures are tough, but they are important to keep our community safe.”
