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:
- close all amenities for the period starting Friday, 8 January 2021, 6pm to Monday, 11 January 2021 6pm. The Committee is empowered to shut down recreational facilities in accordance with Section 18 of the COVID-19 Emergency Response Community Titles Schemes and Other Matters Response Regulations (in place until 31 March 2021).
- 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.
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
