She has also asked people across Brisbane to return to mask-wearing in public.
“What we are going to ask is people of course in the Brisbane City Council areas and in Moreton, is that if you are in crowded areas, to wear a mask. If you’re going to a football match on the weekend, wear your mask going into the venue. If you are on a crowded train, put a mask on. These are the sensible precautions and we will be updating you over the weekend if there are any more cases.”
