Queensland records one new case with fresh concerns over Beenleigh exposure sites


Queensland have recorded one new case of community transmission overnight with a four-year-old girl testing positive for COVID-19.

Authorities confirmed the girl is close contact of the truck driver who tested positive to COVID-19 earlier this week.

Queensland Health Minister Yvette D’ath said the child spent two days while infectious in the community.

The latest case has forced Boulevard Early Learning Centre and Windaroo State School into lockdown with concerns visitors at Beenleigh Marketplace Shopping Centre and the Stylish Nail Salon have been potentially exposed to the virus.

“We are calling on anyone who has been at the Beenleigh Marketplace between 10:30 and 11:45 to go and get tested and await your results; if you have been to the nail salon, you are required to quarantine for 14 days,” Ms D’ath said.

Ms D’ath also expressed the importance of checking in upon arrival at premises, saying residents could not afford to be complacent.

“Businesses and individuals all have a responsibility to make sure that people are checking in,” she said.

“Businesses should not be letting people enter their premises and sit down or participate in activities or shop around without making sure they have checked in first.”
