Queensland Health guidelines, including the wearing of masks, will be strictly enforced as Council facilities and services resume normal operations from tomorrow.

Logan City Council will tomorrow (Saturday, July 3) begin re-opening facilities and restoring all services curtailed by this week’s lockdown.

All Queensland Health restrictions and guidelines, including the wearing of masks and social distancing, will be strictly enforced at all Council venues.

The Queensland Government has announced that the three-day lockdown will end at 6pm today (Friday, July 2) for most local government areas including the City of Logan.

Brisbane and Moreton Bay remain in lockdown for another 24 hours.

Queensland Health advises that everyone should carry a mask whenever they leave home for the next two weeks.

A face mask must be worn at all times when you are outside your home, unless:

  • you are alone in your car or with the members of your household
  • you are eating or drinking
  • you are at your usual workplace and can physically distance from others (except if you work in a hospitality venue or are a passenger transport operator)
  • you are alone outdoors or with members of your household
  • you are exercising
  • you have a medical reason
  • it is unsafe.

Children under 12 and people with some medical conditions or disabilities do not need wear a mask. If in doubt, wear a face mask.
