Greater Brisbane Lockdown

January 8, 2021

From 6pm, Friday, 8 January 2021, Greater Brisbane went into a 3-day lockdown.

Members are advised to recommend to their committees to follow suit and resolve to:

  • put up signage to encourage positive and safe behavior on common property, including that masks are to be worn outside of private residential spaces ( SCA COVID-19 poster template). However, a body corporate does not have the authority to enforce this under its legislative powers without making a by-law requiring masks to be worn, but the signage will help raise awareness of the Directive.


Template Signage

SCA has created template signage for committees to place around their schemes.

The posters aim to raise awareness of COVID-19 safe protocols.

Avoid infection and spread of COVID-19


Lockdown Areas

Greater Brisbane includes the following Local Government areas:
