New exposure sites after 4yo Logan girl tests positive to COVID-19

There’s fears a lockdown may be looming for parts of the South-East after a 4-year-old Logan girl tested positive to COVID-19 late yesterday.

The child is believed to be a close contact of the 46-year-old Logan truck driver who tested positive at Pimpama during routine testing earlier this week.

The man is understood to have been infectious in the community for at least five days.

The new cases have put both the Gold Coast and Logan on high alert, with residents waiting to find out whether there’s been any further community transmission.

A full update is expected by Queensland Health Officials when they front the media for their daily border and COVID-19 press conference later today.

Windaroo State School and The Boulevard Early Learning Centre have been added to the Sunshine State’s exposure site list this morning.

Anyone who was at the childcare centre between 7.30am and 4pm on Tuesday and Wednesday is being told immediately get tested and quarantine for two weeks.

While those who attended Windaroo State School between 8am and 4pm on the same days have also been issued with the same advice.

Visiting restrictions are now in place for aged care facilities, disability services and hospitals in the Logan Local Government area.

Health officials are urging Queenslanders, particularly those in Logan and on the Gold Coast, to come forward and get tested if they feel unwell.

The Premier has previously warned it would only take one case of the highly contagious Delta strain to cross the border to trigger another lockdown.

It’s not yet known what strain of the virus the truck driver and young girl have.
