From Morning Report, 8:35 am on 30 March 2021

Multiple Australian states have imposed restrictions on travellers from Queensland after Brisbane entered a snap three-day lockdown.

On Monday health authorities confirmed four community cases of the UK strain of Covid-19.

They are thought to be linked to a previous cluster that started two weeks ago. Schools are closed, masks are mandatory and locals can only leave their home for essential reasons.
