Whilst this doesn’t affect us directly (for now), you should be aware – even more so if you plan on traveling eastwards from the Darling Downs.
The Queensland Government is advising new restrictions will come into place from 1am Tuesday, 29th June for the 11 local government areas of Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan City, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Somerset, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Gold Coast.
You must carry a face mask with you at all times whenever you leave your home, unless you have a lawful reason not to.
Masks must be worn in indoor spaces such as shopping centres, public transport, hospitals, aged care facilities, churches and workplaces where you can’t physically distance.
You must be seated to drink or eat in cafés and restaurants, and businesses and venues must return to the one person per 4m² inside and one person per 2m² outdoors, while smaller venues up to 200m² are allowed one person per 2m² with a maximum of 50 people.
Private gatherings are restricted to 30 people, and up to 100 people can attend weddings and funerals. Only 20 people can dance at weddings.
