Earlier this morning, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced COVID-19 restrictions would ease at 1am on Friday.

The state was able to return to their December level of caution after 14 days without a reported case related to Brisbane’s Grand Chancellor Hotel cluster, according to chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young.

The move comes just two weeks after the city was plunged into a three-day lockdown in a bid to curb any community transmission of COVID-19 after a hotel quarantine worker tested positive to the highly contagious B117 strain.
