Gold Coast cafe closed over potential new Covid-19 cases

Queensland Health could be announcing at least one new Covid-19 case on the Gold Coast this morning after a local café confirmed that a couple of positive cases visited this week.

The Fuel Bakehouse in Currumbin has been ordered to get all staff tested following exposure to two positive cases this week.

The café posted on Instagram overnight saying that they are complying with the Queensland Health direction and will therefor be closed today.


The post says that the café was potentially exposed on Wednesday and on Tuesday by two separate customers.

“We regret to inform that we have had a positive COVID case come through our doors yesterday (Wednesday) morning,” the post reads.

“We are taking all actions required which means we won’t be able to open our doors tomorrow as we are testing all our staff as directed.

“We have been informed a customer was in store between 7.05am and 725am on Wednesday.

“We have only been informed our staff require testing at this point, we have had no advice regarding our customers over the period of the day.

“We have been informed we had another positive case from customer on Tuesday 7th between 12.10pm and 12.15pm, our customer sat outside, and no other customers were present at the time,” it says.

Queensland Health is yet to officially confirm any new cases and no new exposure sites have popped up on the government website just yet.

More information is expected in Queensland’s press conference today.
