Restrictions to ease for Greater Brisbane

As of 1:00am on Friday 22 January, millions of people in Greater Brisbane will no longer need to wear a mask in public places, except for in airports and while travelling on planes.

The easing of restrictions for the Greater Brisbane area (Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Moreton, and Redlands) will see the region return to the level of restrictions that were in place before Christmas.

Visitor restrictions in aged care, hospitals, prisons and disability accommodation services will be lifted.

While not mandatory, you are encouraged to wear a mask on public transport, in a taxi or ride share and when physical distancing is not possible.

Other changes as part of the easing of restrictions from 22 January include:

  • 200 people allowed at weddings and funerals;
  • 50 people in homes and 100 people in public spaces;
  • 100% capacity at ticketed venues and open air stadiums; and
  • Dancing allowed in all venues, subject to the one person per two square metre rule
