Queenslanders who have visited anywhere on the Sydney site who was later tested positive for COVID-19 have been told to be quarantine immediately.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she is expecting more cases would be confirmed after a positive test of a man in his fifties.
The state has released a list of exposure sites in Sydney, dating back to April 30th.
Anyone in Queensland who has been to anywhere during the risk period is being asked to quarantine at their home or residence and as soon as possible by early tomorrow morning and take a COVID-19 test.
NSW Health has already made it clear that anyone who has visited any of these places must be isolated, and should not get on flights, “said Jeannette Young, Queensland’s chief health officer.
We are working closely with NSW to get a better idea of the risks involved in this case, so we are mirroring NSW Health’s advice as an interim measure.
“We will continue to assess the situation as more information comes to hand over the next 24 hours.”
Jeannette Young says it is important that anyone who visits these sites isolates and tests themselves.
Everyone is encouraged to observe the Queensland Health Inter-Society Exposure Venue Lists for 14 days after their arrival to make sure no new locations are added.
Queensland’s COVID-19 remains at the same total of 1,568, with no new cases in the last 24 hours.
