Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says Queensland has done well to stamp out a potential outbreak since the two Logan women returned with the virus from Melbourne.
“So there’s has been no evidence of community transmission in Queensland now for 28 days.
“This is great news but of course it rests on every single Queenslander, if you are sick, stay at home and get tested.
“Keep up the social distancing, and the good hand hygiene and we’ll get through it,” the Premier said.
