Covid-19 Parent Update - March 29 2021


March 29 2021

Dear Parents,


You will have heard news about a lockdown starting today in the Greater Brisbane area. Please see important information from the Premier below:


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.


The Premier has announced that Greater Brisbane will go into lockdown for three days from 5pm today, Monday 29 March to 5pm Thursday 1 April, to help stop the spread of COVID-19.


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.


Importantly, anyone who was in Greater Brisbane on, or since Saturday 20 March, but has since left must follow the same lockdown rules as for Greater Brisbane.

To keep our most vulnerable Queenslanders safe, aged care, correctional centres, hospitals and disability service providers will close to visitors across the state.


General health advice and contact tracing
