Sport and Recreation Advice
Greater Brisbane lockdown and Queensland restrictions
As you would have seen on the news today, Greater Brisbane will enter a 3 day lockdown commencing 5pm today. In a practical sense for sport, recreation and fitness organisations, this means that during the lock down period:
- Organised community sport, recreation and fitness is not permitted.
- Social sporting-based activities – limited to two people outdoors with physical distancing observed eg golf, tennis is permitted.
- Boot camps and personal training – limited to two people outdoors with physical distancing observed.
- Professional sport/elite sport/elite athletes – training and trials may occur without spectators with physical distancing observed to the extent possible eg Olympic trials, training is permitted.
Full details are available at COVID-19 update | Health and wellbeing | Queensland Government (www.qld.gov.au)
In summary from 5pm 29 March until 5pm Thursday 1 April, people in the local government areas of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Redlands and Logan will be required to stay at home except for essential reasons.
People across Queensland must carry a face mask at all times which must be worn in indoor spaces (apart from when undertaking strenuous exercise). It is strongly recommended you wear a mask when outdoors if you are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people, such as busy walkways and thoroughfares.
Anyone who has been in the Greater Brisbane area on or since 20 March 2021 must also follow the restrictions detailed at the above link. Those leaving the Greater Brisbane area during this time may do so for essential reasons or to return home, but must also remain at their residence and limit their movements until the lockdown period has ended.

I understand the challenges for businesses and volunteer organisations to cease operations at short notice, however it is important to act quickly to provide community safety and allow us to resume activity as soon as possible.
If any organisation have any specific questions, please email SR.COVID19@dtis.qld.gov.au
