As part of the greater Brisbane area the City of Logan was in lockdown for the past three days in an effort to keep community transmission of COVID-19 at zero.
Now past the lockdown period, the city has opened and has resumed trading for the most part as it was prior to the weekend, just with some extra precautions.
City of Logan Mayor Darren Power thanked the community for their efforts over the past three days.
“Well done to everyone for playing their part to keep us safe,” he said.
“Our Council facilities and venues have re-opened today, however we will remain alert and will continue to follow advice from Queensland Health.
“With a lot of our dining venues and coffee outlets having a very quiet one last weekend, there is no better time to support local and grab yourself a Logan coffee.
“With some amazing coffee shops, cafes and restaurants across our city, it is worth exploring the culinary delights of Logan.
“When you support local, you help keep more money in the local economy and help support local jobs.
“Remember to carry your masks with you and keep your distance. Masks are required for all indoor public spaces (except when eating or drinking).”
