Greater Brisbane lock-down update
29 Mar 2021
Today, the Queensland Government announced a three-day lockdown from 5pm today for Greater Brisbane (Ipswich, Logan, Redlands, Moreton and Brisbane council areas), leading up to Easter and the school holidays.
As Autism Queensland is an essential service, we will continue to operate throughout this period.
If you are currently accessing an Autism Queensland service in Greater Brisbane please note the following:
- Masks to be worn by staff and visitors to all sites (children and students are not required to wear masks)
- Temperature screening required at both Brisbane and Gladstone sites
- Essential visitors only are permitted to all AQ Brisbane sites
- The AQ School (Brighton and Sunnybank Hills campuses) and Early Childhood groups will remain open in Brisbane and Gladstone. (Parents may elect to keep their children at home, however all procedures for notification of absences and cancellation remain in place.)
- Therapy appointments will be rescheduled to zoom wherever possible.
Anyone attending our services who has been in any of the contract tracing locations as advised by Queensland Health during the relevant times, please notify your therapist or the centre manager, and follow the advice in the public health alert regarding self-isolation and testing.
Additionally, anyone with any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, should get tested immediately and isolate until you receive a negative result. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue or loss of smell and/or taste.
If you have any concerns about your health, contact your doctor or contact 13HEALTH (13 43 25 84)
We will continue to provide updates as the situation progresses.
