BREAKING: New Gold Coast COVID-19 exposure sites

The Gold Coast is now on COVID-19 alert, with two popular locations in the city listed as exposure sites.

Dining restaurant and cocktail bar Koi Broadbeach has been listed as a ‘close contact’ venue by Queensland Health this afternoon.

Anyone who was there between 1.50pm and 2.50pm last Wednesday, July 14, is being told to “immediately travel by private transport directly to your home or accommodation and quarantine” and get tested as soon as possible.

A COVID-19 alert has also been issued for Dreamworld, with fears an infected person spent more than three hours at the busy Coomera theme park.

Anyone who was there between 10.30am and 2.00pm on Friday, July 16, is considered a ‘low-risk’ contact and is being told to get tested.

However, guests do not need to isolate unless they begin to experience symptoms of the virus.

“Continue to monitor for symptoms, if you become symptomatic get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result,” Queensland Health said.

All guests who were at the themepark during the affected time period are now being tracked down and informed by contact tracers, after they checked into the venue using the Qld Check-In App.

“Dreamworld’s number one priority is the health and safety of guests and team members, and the park operates under a Queensland Health approved COVID Safe Plan,” the theme park said in a statement on Friday.

“Queensland Health has advised that any guests who visited Dreamworld on Friday the 16th of July from 10.30am to 2pm should monitor their health and, if they develop even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms, get tested.

“Dreamworld team members who came into direct contact with the positive guest are being identified, asked to isolate immediately and to present a negative test result before returning to work.”
