As a result, venues in Mudgeeraba, Robina and Nerang have been listed as contact tracing sites, with a number of new sites added by Queensland Health on Saturday evening.

They include Big W at Robina on Tuesday 30 November between 9.15am – 10.05am, and Myer Robina on the same day between 11am and 12.15pm.

Both are casual contact venues, so anyone who was there during the above times is being told to quarantine until a negative COVID-19 test result is received.

The whole of Robina Town Centre has been listed as a low risk contact site for Tuesday between 9.15am to 1.30pm.

Dan Murphys at Nerang has also been identified as a casual contact exposure site for Thursday December 2, between 3pm to 3.30pm.

Health authorities are still probing the source of the city’s latest cases, with mystery surrounding where the couple acquired the virus.
