UPDATED LIST: Gold Coast COVID-19 exposure sites

Queensland Health has finally released a list of COVID-19 exposure sites linked to a positive case announced earlier today.

A man, who is connected to the aviation cluster in Brisbane, was among two new virus cases confirmed in Queensland on Friday.

The State’s top doctor confirmed he had been holidaying around the Kirra area on the Gold Coast with his wife and two children over the last week.

Despite naming a number of venues attended by the man at the 10.00am press conference, the confirmed list of exposure sites was not uploaded by Queensland Health until 7.00pm.

The delay again left thousands of nervous residents waiting almost nine hours to find out whether they had been impacted.

It comes after Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate on Thursday slammed the department after it took eight hours to publish sites linked to yesterday’s cases.

According to the latest public health alert, there are almost a dozen new exposure sites on the southern Gold Coast, including the Iconic Kirra Beach Resort which is among a number of venues that have been listed multiple times.

That’s because the man stayed at the Iconic Kirra Beach Resort for four days with his family from September 25.

Of the new exposure sites on the southern Gold Coast, just three are considered close contact venues, including the North Kirra Surf Club, Kirramisu Café and Restaurant and Greenmount Beach Surf Club.
