11 Local Government Areas in Queensland are to enter 3 day snap lockdown from 4pm on Saturday 31 July.
The Queensland Government have announced that 11 Local Government Areas (LGAs) will enter a 3 day snap lockdown beginning at 4pm on Saturday 31 July. See that announcement here. The LGAs affected are:-
- Brisbane City
- Moreton Bay Regional Council
- Gold Coast
- Lockyer Valley Regional Council
- Logan City
- Noosa Shire Council
- Redland City
- Scenic Rim Regional Council
- Somerset Regional Council
- Sunshine Coast Regional Council
People in those areas have been urged to stay home immediately if they can.
The lockdown restrictions also apply to anyone who’s been in these 11 LGAs from 1:00am on Saturday, August 31, even those who typically reside outside these areas. Those people must follow the lockdown restrictions when they return home.
As a result of this news, our Orientation session for the Brisbane 2nd Session examinations scheduled for tomorrow has been canceled and those students who had booked have already been contacted with this news. We will process refunds in the coming days.
We are aware that the flow-on effect of this lockdown will also impact exams across the state and are working through this now. We will be in touch in the coming week to advise Members of their available options once we have a more detailed understanding of this impact.
Regional Manager Sharon Cois completed her employment with the RAD on Friday 31 July. We are working through the recruitment process swiftly and will keep Members informed of this progress. In the meantime, Members will be contacted by their new exams tour organiser as soon as possible to update on any impact on their exam session. Members with non exam related concerns or questions are asked to contact the relevant RAD Australia staff member who will be able to assist.
