A public health alert is being issued for more contact tracing locations in Redcliffe, Rothwell, Caboolture, Chermside, Aspley, Kippa-Ring and the Brisbane Airport.

Queensland recorded one new locally acquired coronavirus case overnight – the mother of a 12-year-old boy who tested positive yesterday.

The boy and his father tested positive to the virus yesterday as did an unlinked worker at the international airport.

They have the Delta strain.

Contact tracing efforts have been ramped up in efforts to find close contacts and stop the strain spreading further.

Queensland Health says anyone who has been to a venue within the identified timeframe should get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result, and also complete the contact tracing form on the website.

Some of the new sites include Redcliffe GP Superclinic Pharmacy, BP Caboolture north bound, Flannerys Organic Health Food Store in Chermside, and a Woolworths in Kippa-Ring.

“A reminder for all Queenslanders – if you have any COVID-19 symptoms at any time, no matter how mild, you should immediately get tested for COVID-19.

“Anyone who has recently travelled to Queensland from interstate is urged to monitor the contact tracing list for new and updated exposure venues.”
