Previous Update: Greater Brisbane 3 Day Lockdown
All swimming club activities including but not limited to, training, club nights, development activities and competitions, in the Greater Brisbane Area (Moreton Bay, Brisbane, Ipswich, Redlands and Logan) is suspended while Brisbane’s three-day lockdown is in place. We strongly encourage all members to reconsider any activity prior to the 5pm lockdown.
From 5pm tonight, Monday 29 March 2021, people in Greater Brisbane will be required to stay at home except:
• to attend work if you can’t work from home;
• to buy essentials like groceries and medicine;
• look after the vulnerable; and
• exercise within their neighbourhood
If you do need to leave home as above, masks are to be worn at all times when outside of your place of residence, this includes in workplaces and on public transport.
Have you visited Greater Brisbane since March 20?
Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young said at the press conference earlier today “anyone who has been in that Greater Brisbane area since Saturday, March 20, is now required to follow those same requirements, that is to stay wherever they are except for those four reasons”.
This includes anyone who attended the recent 2021 Speedo National Preparation Meet and Jess Schipper Challenge, as well as the Queensland School Sport Swimming State Championships (10-12 years and 13-19 years).
