BNE shutdown


A RISE in community transmissi­on of COVID-19 in Qld will see several parts of the state returned to stage 2 of its “COVID Safe Future” plan from 4pm today.

The restrictio­ns apply to Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Logan, Moreton Bay, Townsville and Palm Island, reducing indoor events to 75% of seated capacity or one person per four square metres unseated, while one person per two square metres is allowed outdoors.

Stadiums will also be reduced to 75% of capacity under the changes, while all venues will be restricted to seated eating and drinking.

The move comes in the leadup to this weekend’s highly anticipate­d NRL Grand Final.
