Qld Government issues contact tracing alert after Auckland case

The State Government is asking anyone who has recently travelled from New Zealand to Australia to review the country’s latest exposure sites.

It comes after a worker at Auckland Airport tested positive for COVID-19 on April 20.

The woman cleaned planes bound Australia while potentially infectious and also visited a number of sites in Auckland.


Thankfully no further cases have been identified since the worker’s diagnosis, but Queensland Health Minister Yvette D’Ath has urged travellers to remain alert.

She’s urging anyone who has been to the same venues as the cleaner to monitor their health for the next 14 days and get tested.

“Any person who has recently travelled from New Zealand to Australia should review those venues of concern,” Minister D’Ath said.

The list of exposure sites can be found on the New Zealand Ministry of Health website here.

They have also been published on the Queensland Health website as an “act of absolute precaution”.

No new coronavirus cases have been recorded in Queensland today.

The number of active cases across the state also continues to drop, with just 14 infections now active.
