Queensland health authorities have added more sites to a growing number of new exhibition sites with reports that a Brisbane woman has tested positive for COVID-19 overnight.
Queensland health officials added a number of new exhibit venues on Wednesday evening, including a Melbourne-Brisbane Virgin flight and several shops in Brisbane’s CBD.
Passengers and crew who flew on Virgin flight VA333 from Melbourne to Brisbane from 2:59 p.m. to 4:55 p.m. were ordered to self-isolate immediately after being listed as a place of close contact.
JB Hi-Fi, EB Games, and Pineapple Express Cafe in Hamilton are just a few of the recent sites where positive cases have been visited.
The full list is available on the Queensland Health website.
There are also reports of another case of COVID-19 overnight.
A woman from Brisbane has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 after visiting a northern New South Wales hotspot, the Courier Mail reports.
The Camp Hill woman reportedly visited Kyogle before coming into contact with someone who later tested positive.
A number of new exhibit venues were revealed late Wednesday, including several stores in a Westfield shopping center, a Bunnings and Woolworths in Cannon Hill and a sports club in Surfers Paradise.
The Sunshine State reported four new locally acquired cases on Tuesday and one Wednesday.
The cases are linked to an aviation worker who lives in the north of the city and an NSW truck driver who was contagious in central Brisbane for eight days.
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath also announced an additional infection, which was not included in local figures as they tested positive for the virus in New South Wales.
“We also have an additional case which will not be recorded in the Queensland figures, as they tested positive in NSW, but it is a truck driver who has traveled to the Gold Coast area, lives in Queensland and was in the Gold Coast region from September 25-27, “she said.
Mask-wearing requirements, implemented Tuesday for the local government areas of Brisbane and Moreton Bay, have been extended to the Gold Coast.
There will also be restrictions on who has access to vulnerable health care devices, including hospitals, care facilities for the elderly and people with disabilities.
