It’s D-Day for Brisbane as to whether the threat of a coronavirus outbreak has passed or not, which could mean a lifting of restrictions.
If Queensland records no new local cases again today, it will have been two weeks since a case of the highly infectious UK strain was out in the public.
The potential outbreak forced the capital into a snap three day lockdown, with all residents urged to stay home unless absolutely necessary.

Following the three days the city was asked to spend a further ten days under tight restrictions, to ensure that if an undetected case of the virus was in the public, it wouldn’t be able to spread too far.
Those restrictions include mandatory mask wearing when out in public, and small gathering numbers.
Yesterday, the Premier promised that if there were no new cases recorded today, that those restrictions would be lifted back to what they were before Christmas.
An announcement is expected to be made later this morning.
