No new local COVID-19 cases in Qld

QUEENSLAND has recorded no local cases of COVID-19 as parts of the Sunshine State remain on alert.

One new case was detected in hotel quarantine and acquired overseas, leaving 31 active cases across the state.

The good news of no new local cases comes after a woman, who travelled from Melbourne, spent time in the community while infectious.


Queensland Health has issued health alerts for a number of locations across the Sunshine Coast, including a busy restaurant and shopping centre.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young urged Queenslanders to remain vigilant.

“As always, if you have any COVID-19 symptoms at any time, no matter how mild, you should immediately get tested for COVID-19,” she said in a statement on Tuesday.
