Queensland has recorded no new local COVID-19 cases today, but another interstate truck driver has tested positive and was active in the community for two days.
The driver, who had one dose of the vaccine, tested positive in Victoria on October 20.
But Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young said the man was out and about in Brisbane on Monday and Tuesday this week before returning to Victoria.

A number of exposure sites linked to the man have been posted on the Qld Health website, including ‘The Gilly Barber’ in Richlands, Hoyts Cinema in Stafford and Freedom Fuels in Acacia Ridge.
Health officials also revealed that the condition of the infected Gold Coast Uber driver, believed to have acquired the virus interstate, has deteriorated rapidly overnight.
Dr Young said the case should prove as a stark warning about just how dangerous the virus is.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said authorities are still probing the man’s movements, with mystery surrounding how he crossed the border into Queensland without going into quarantine.
“The police are doing those investigations and they will update the public when they see fit”.
The Premier continued by uring Queenslanders, particularly those in Logan and on the Gold Coast, to come forward and get vaccinated this weekend.
