PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: COVID patient visited popular Ikea store

Queensland Health has issued a public health alert for Ikea at Logan after a person infected with COVID-19 visited the store last weekend.

It comes after a woman from Russell Island in Moreton Bay was confirmed as having the virus on Saturday.

The case is believed to be linked to the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre cluster.


A fever clinic has been set up on the island with residents urged to monitor their health.

Queensland Health has also released an updated list of venues where the infected person visited.

It includes the Ikea at Logan where the woman shopped at on Sunday, August 30 between 9.45am and 10.15am.
