A raft of restrictions will come back into effect for South East Queensland and Townsville at 4pm today, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced in a press conference this morning.
The changes come after six new community cases were reported overnight, four of them linked to the aviation cluster.
The restrictions, which will remain for two weeks, apply to Brisbane, Gold Coast, Moreton Bay, Logan, Townsville and Palm Island and take those areas from stage three back to stage two restrictions.
That means: a cap of 30 people for public and private gatherings and a cap of 100 people at weddings and funerals (and a maximum of 20 people dancing at weddings).
Restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs will return to a capacity of one person per four square metres (and one person per two square metres outdoors) and patrons at these venues must be seated when eating and drinking.
Capacity at stadiums and events, including this weekend's NRL Grand Final, will be capped at 75 per cent. While aged care, correctional centres, hospitals and disability service providers will close to visitors.
“We have to put these restrictions in place if we’re to avoid a lockdown at this stage,” the premier said.
