Queensland's Health Minister and State Member for Redcliffe Yvette D'Ath has this afternoon issued the following public health alert.
Queensland has recorded one new case of COVID-19 in the community, with contact tracing and testing underway after a Melbourne woman tested positive.
The woman in her 40s is being managed by Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.
A Public Health Alert has been issued for parts of the Sunshine Coast, Goondiwindi, and Toowoomba in relation to this case.
We know the woman travelled by car from Melbourne on the 1 June and arrived in the Sunshine Coast on the 5 June.
We are working diligently to determine where the woman stopped after leaving Melbourne, crossing the border into New South Wales and arriving in Queensland.
Anyone who has been to an exposure site listed on our website must come forward and get tested.
Anyone else who has symptoms – no matter how mild – need to be tested as soon as possible.
Get tested and stay home until you get the results, as the most minor symptom might be COVID-19.
