The snap three-day lockdown, which takes effect at 4pm today has forced the cancellation of many big and small events across the region. Here’s a list

Moreton Bay Region is one of 11 council areas going into the lockdown following seven new cases of COVID-19’s Delta strain in the past 24 hours. The number of cases in coming days will determine how long the lockdown will be, but at this stage it is until 4pm on Tuesday (August 3).

The only reasons to leave your home will be to:

1. To buy essentials such as groceries or medications

2. Work or study if you can’t do either from home, no school unless children of essential workers
