Both have been listed as “low risk” venues, so anyone who was there during those times is being told to get tested, but isolation is only required if you have symptoms.

It comes after another locally-acquired case of COVID-19 was detected on the Gold Coast yesterday, taking the recent cluster in the city to four cases.

The man is believed to have recently travelled from New South Wales, with officials suspecting he may be the original source of the cluster.

Gold Coasters are being urged to remain vigilant for symptoms, with fears there may still be other undetected cases in the city.

“There is still a risk on the Gold Coast because there are a number of these positive cases that have been in the community for a number of days,” Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said.

“So we want anyone on the Gold Coast to come out and get tested if you have any symptoms whatsoever.”
