Red alert for Brisbane and Sunshine Coast while lockdown lifts in Sydney

More than two million Queenslanders will be able to come out of lockdown today.

There have been no changes to the restrictions that are due to come into effect at 6pm Monday in the Greater Brisbane region, ending the three-day lockdown of the area.

Masks will be required in supermarkets, shops, indoor markets, hospitals and aged care facilities, places of worship, libraries, indoor recreational facilities, such as cinemas and art galleries, and gyms.

Residents in the council areas of Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Moreton Bay and Redlands must stay at home until 6pm on Monday except for essential work and shopping, exercise, to access healthcare or look after the vulnerable.

"Now in indoor workplaces where you can socially distance you don't have to wear a mask but where you can't socially distance we ask you to put a mask on".

Hospitality employees will also be required to wear masks while working.

The new restrictions include a mask mandate for most indoor social situations.

Sherwin said several of the 55 rioters who had been charged so far were accused of firearms offenses. While he didn't name Coffman then, he described the Molotov cocktails in his truck as "ready to go".

"We've got to remember this is a very contagious virus, even before the new variant, and this variant is 70 per cent more contagious, so I wasn't that surprised that our first breach was because of this virus", she said.

Two of them had also been in the United Kingdom, where a new variant of the virus is swamping hospitals. Patron numbers will again be limited for Brisbane businesses, with the "one per four square metres" coming back into force for all but small venues, which will instead be subject to the "one per two square metres" rule.

No dancing will be allowed for the meantime, except for at weddings. Restrictions are set to ease at 6:00pm.

"We're asking anyone who has been to specific locations the first positive case has been, to get tested and go into quarantine for 14 days since exposure", Dr Young said.

"If you have been to any of these sites in Maleny or South Brisbane or in the city on the train on that particular day, or the Jetstar flight, please come forward so we can assess whether you're a close contact and you need to go into quarantine and get tested", she said.

The Palaszczuk Government on Friday placed all residents in the Greater Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Redlands and Moreton areas in a three-day lockdown until 6pm Monday after a hotel cleaner tested positive to the highly contagious United Kingdom strain of coronavirus. You don't have to wear a mask while at the hairdressers or getting a beauty treatment if that's not possible, but Dr Young says if it is possible, you might want to pop one on just to be safe.

Restrictions for impacted areas of Greater Brisbane will be eased from 6:00 pm today and ACT residents now in the Greater Brisbane area will need to follow the Queensland Health advice, including wearing a mask for a further 10 days.
