We await advice from the Qld government as to when lockdown will be lifted. Once we know we will provide further advice.

Note for events to proceed after lockdown, we will be required to meet spacing requirements which will not be advised until after the premier has lifted the lockdown. A lifting of lockdown does not mean classes will proceed. We are required to adhere to the lockdown spacing requirements, we will provide more information once it comes to hand.

Note for events in Toowoomba and Warwick or areas where the boarder to a lifted lockdown is very close by these classes. We have sourced staff from outside the lockdown area to service these classes to allow them to proceed. Anyone attending that is from inside a lockdown area will be issued a credit as they will be unable to leave lockdown to attend, to ensure we are adhering with federal laws.
