Further COVID-19 case identified in Queensland

27 June 2021

This afternoon, Queensland Health has identified a further case of COVID-19 in the community.

The case was a miner who had returned from working in the Northern Territory, transited through Brisbane Airport on Friday night and travelled to the Sunshine Coast.

The mine worker was infectious in the community for around a day.

Contact tracing is underway and any venues of concern will be added to the Queensland Health website. The case is on top of the two community-acquired cases identified this morning and will be included in tomorrow's case numbers.

We are asking all Queenslanders to regularly monitor the list of exposure venues on the Queensland Health website and follow the public health advice.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms at any time, no matter how mild, you should immediately get tested for COVID.

People who are currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine can book an appointment at a vaccination location in Queensland.
