Brisbane residents urged to avoid panic buying

Queensland Health is urgently reminding the Brisbane community that supermarkets and essential businesses will remain open during the Greater Brisbane area lockdown.

From 6pm Friday 8 January to 6pm Monday 11 January the lockdown will be in place for residents, restricting movements for essential purposes only (including shopping for essentials, food and necessary supplies).

There are no concerns that supermarket supplies are at risk during this three-day period.

Those attending supermarkets, particularly during busy periods, are reminded to practice social distancing and hand hygiene, wear a mask and follow all health advice.
