The Queensland government’s three-day lockdown of Greater Brisbane ended at 6pm on 11 January, after the state recorded a third consecutive day with no new cases of community transmission of COVID-19. However, four new cases in hotel quarantine have been confirmed; the partner of a quarantine hotel cleaner who contracted the highly-contagious UK variant has also been diagnosed with this strain of COVID-19. The government will maintain some coronavirus restrictions across Brisbane until at least 22 January, while Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has not ruled out further snap lockdowns if they are deemed necessary.
