Police congratulate Redlands community for staying home and following rules during greater Brisbane's three day lockdown

The Redlands community stuck to the rules during greater Brisbane's three day lockdown, with police recording no restriction breaches.

Redlands, Logan, Ipswich, Moreton Bay and Brisbane residents were required to stay at home except for essential work and shopping, exercise, and to access healthcare or look after the vulnerable.

It came after a hotel quarantine worker tested positive to the highly contagious UK variant of COVID-19.

The Bayside Control Group conducted patrols during the three day period and questioned several people who had ventured outside their homes but no enforcement action was required.

Inspector Lindsay Kilpatrick said the community should be congratulated for their response.

"Officers had cause to stop and talk to numerous persons during this period who were out and about," he said.

"Police used communication, compassion and consideration when dealing with members of the community and where necessary reminded people of their obligations and handed out a number of face masks.

"In the majority of interactions, members of the public were understanding of the impending COVID threat and were compliant."

Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said just one fine had been handed out in the last 24 hours for a breach in lockdown rules.

He said a person was found to have been dishonest with police about their reason for leaving home.

It comes as investigations continue into the Hotel Grand Chancellor, where all six cases of the mutant UK strain in Queensland originated.
