Queensland records no new local cases, Greater Brisbane to exit lockdown.
Greater Brisbane will exit its strict three-day lockdown from 6pm Monday.
No new cases of community transmission were recorded in Queensland on Monday. There were four new cases in hotel quarantine.
Almost 19,000 tests were undertaken.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was pleased by how well Greater Brisbane residents had followed the weekend's stay-at-home orders.
"Can I thank people in the Greater Brisbane region for responding in the way that they did," she said on Monday.
"It has been absolutely truly remarkable. So, I can announce that the reward for this sacrifice is that we are able to end our lockdown after three days. That is fantastic news. So, from 6pm tonight, that lockdown will end."

However, Greater Brisbane will still be subject to a number of restrictions for at least the next 10 days to 1am January 22.
Masks will be required in shopping centres, supermarkets, retail outlets, indoor markets, hospitals and aged care facilities, places of worship, libraries and indoor recreational facilities, including cinemas and gyms.
Masks are also mandatory on public transport, in taxis and ride shares.
"So, when in doubt, wear a mask," Palaszczuk said.
"That's very simple. But it is those crowded areas, we just want Greater Brisbane, for the next 10 days, to all be part of this mask-wearing. It is for 10 days only, and then hopefully, if we get zero community transmission over those 10 days, we can go back to the rest of Queensland."
