We wanted to pop up a blog post just to acknowledge the restrictions in place in some areas in Queensland and to reassure our clients that at this stage there is no impact on classes. All classes presently scheduled in the restricted areas meet the requirements in place.
Since the last lockdown, we have continued to space all groups of clients by 1.5m and we have continued to adhere to the venue capacities of 4msq for large venues and 2msq for smaller venues in terms of class numbers so we remain unaffected by the imposed restrictions as they stand.
What has the government said?
The following Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Queensland will enter stage 2 restrictions from 4pm AEST Thursday 30 September 2021 in response to a growing number of COVID-19 cases in the community:

From 1am AEST 29 September 2021 spectators attending stadium events at major and smaller venues in Queensland must wear a mask at all times, even while they are seated, except for when eating or, or if they have a permitted reason not to.
