PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: New COVID-19 exposure sites in Qld

A number of new exposure sites believed to be linked to a Logan truck driver that tested positive to COVID-19 on the Gold Coast have been identified.

The truckie tested positive at Pimpama as part of routine testing over the weekend and is believed to have been infectious in the community between Saturday and Wednesday.

As a result, the 46-year-old man’s family have now been placed into isolation and are being tested.
