For two weeks, masks will be mandatory in Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich, Logan, Redlands, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Scenic Rim, Lockyer Valley, Moreton Bay and Somerset local government areas.
Dancing is banned in most places and weddings and funerals are limited to 100 people.
Household visits are limited to 30 people and the one per four square metre rule will be reintroduced.
What this means for you:
You must carry a face mask with you at all times when you leave your home.
Masks must be worn in indoor spaces such as shopping centres, public transport, hospitals, aged care facilities, churches and workplaces where you can’t physically distance.
You do not have to wear a mask if you are in a car by yourself or with members of your household; if you are outdoors with members of your household; or if you're eating or drinking.
You must be seated to drink or eat in cafés and restaurants, and businesses and venues must return to the one person per 4m² inside and one person per 2m² outdoors, while smaller venues up to 200m² are allowed one person per 2m² with a maximum of 50 people.
