The health and safety of our employees, artists and audiences visiting Brisbane Powerhouse remains our top priority.
Brisbane Powerhouse has introduced a number of precautionary measures on site, including additional cleaning with hospital grade disinfectant, hand sanitiser around the venue and sterilising surfaces.
We also ask that everyone on site practises good hygiene by covering coughs and sneezes with the elbow, regularly washing hands thoroughly with soap and using hand sanitiser when possible.
Posters reminding people to practise good hygiene have also been placed in our restrooms.
We would like to acknowledge the global scale of this challenge and the uncertainty faced by each of us as individuals and as a community.
Brisbane Powerhouse is more than just a great building. We are a not-for-profit organisation, a community of creators, movers and dreamers and part of the very fabric of Brisbane.
If you are in a position to help us invest in the future of local artists, the creation of new works and to keep our awe-inspiring building operating during this challenging time, we encourage you to support the Brisbane Powerhouse Foundation with a tax-deductible donation.

Should I wear a surgical mask?
Surgical masks in the community are only helpful in preventing people who have coronavirus disease from spreading it to others. If you are well, you do not need to wear a surgical mask as there is little evidence supporting the widespread use of surgical masks in healthy people to prevent transmission in public.
Who needs to isolate?
Specific requirements are in place for people who have returned from a country or region that is at high or moderate risk for COVID-19, or think may they have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus.
Go to www.health.gov.au/covid19-travellers for the list of at risk countries and isolation requirements.
What do I do if I develop symptoms?
If you develop symptoms (fever, a cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath) within 14 days of leaving country or region that is at higher risk for COVID-19, or within 14 days of last contact of a confirmed case, you should arrange to see your doctor for urgent assessment.
Go to www.health.gov.au/covid19 travellers for the current list of high or moderate risk countries.
You should telephone the health clinic or hospital before you arrive and tell them your travel history or that you may have been in contact with a potential case of coronavirus. You must remain isolated either in your home or a healthcare setting until public health authorities inform you it is safe for you to return to your usual activities.
While coronavirus is of concern, it is important to remember that most people displaying symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or tiredness are likely suffering with a cold or other respiratory illness— not coronavirus.
