No new COVID-19 cases as Qld officials monitor NSW outbreaks

Queensland has recorded another day with no new cases of coroanvirus, as officials keep a close watch on the situation in New South Wales.

Queensland’s total number of cases remains at 1076.

Just five of those remain active including one on the Gold Coast.


More than 502,000 tests have now been carried out across the state since the beginning of the pandemic.

There are still 1800 people in quarantine in Queensland, including 281 on the Gold Coast.

It comes as concerns grow about the situation in New South Wales amid fears we could see border restrictions tightened even further.

People from the Fairfield Local Government Area will be barred from entering Queensland from early Monday morning after it was added to the list of hotspots last week.

The rate of community transmission in New South Wales is growing, while a coronavirus cluster in southwest Sydney had grown to 60 on Saturday.

A couple has also tested positive in Byron Bay after returning from Sydney.

The pair had attended funeral and church services during their stay.
