DOWNLOAD the Covid safe app.
That’s the message from Lockyer Mayor Tanya Milligan after Queensland’s coronavirus case numbers hit 12.
Currently, there are 12 Queenslanders infected with coronavirus, one case from the Metro North has recovered.
It comes as three women travelled to Melbourne via Sydney, where they hosted an Air B&B party.
Across the weekend, 110,000 Queensland were tested for coronavirus at the weekend.
From a council level, Cr Milligan said the status remained at situational awareness and operational readiness.
“Our community has been really vigilant and aware, I think we’ve been really careful and need to reiterate the messaging that comes from the premier and Queensland health,” Cr Milligan said.
Active cases are currently in the following regions
- Darling Downs – 1
- Gold Coast – 1
- Mater Health Service – 2
- Metro North – 1
- Metro South – 4
- Sunshine Coast – 1
- West Moreton – 2
Both West Moreton cases stem from close contact with three women who travelled to Melbourne and allegedly lied to get back into Queensland.
A 27-year-old man from Bellbird Park in Ipswich dined at the Madtongsan IV Korean restaurant in Sunnybank last Thursday.
The second West Moreton patient is the man’s wife, and she was already in quarantine.
The Darling Downs case is a return overseas traveller from Toowoomba, and is in quarantine.
Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk spoke this morning about overseas traveller who returned to the Sunshine Coast from Sydney.
“I think now is the time for overseas travellers to definitely go into mandatory hotel quarantine,” she said.
“There have been some exemptions, but I don’t think now is the right time for those exemptions.
“I don’t think we need to have any elements of risk at the moment when we are dealing with this global pandemic.”
Queensland Chief Health Officer Doctor Jeanette Young urged Queenslanders to download the COVIDsafe app.
“The next week remains critical, we know its eight days since the first two cases went to Melbourne and were out in the community, but we have the following cases,” she said.
“We know that one case could rapidly lead out to a lot more cases.”
