Please read all of the below information so you are informed and can assist in keeping yourself and your community safe.

Greater Brisbane has entered a 3 day lockdown which commenced 5 p.m. yesterday, Monday 29th March. In a practical sense for sport, recreation and fitness organisations, this means that during the lock down period (in the Greater Brisbane area):

  • Social sporting-based activities – limited to two people outdoors with physical distancing observed eg golf, tennis is permitted.
  • Boot camps and personal training – limited to two people outdoors with physical distancing observed.
  • Professional sport/elite sport/elite athletes – training and trials may occur without spectators with physical distancing observed to the extent possible eg Olympic trials, training is permitted.

In summary, until 5 p.m. Thursday 1 April, people in the local government areas of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Redlands and Logan will be required to stay at home except for essential reasons.

People across Queensland must carry a face mask at all times which must be worn in indoor spaces (apart from when undertaking strenuous exercise). It is strongly recommended you wear a mask when outdoors if you are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people, such as busy walkways and thoroughfares.
