Queensland COVID-19 update - 8 September 2020

8 September 2020

Queensland has recorded just one new case of COVID-19, with a returned traveller testing positive.

The woman, aged in her 20s, is in hotel quarantine on the Sunshine Coast.

Her diagnosis takes Queensland’s total cases to 1,134. Of these, 25 cases are active and 12 are in hospital.

In the past 24 hours, 7,660 tests were performed.

Contact tracing is continuing as part of the public health response to the COVID-19 cluster stemming from the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre cluster.

Queensland Health on the weekend expanded its list of locations where confirmed cases from the cluster have visited.

Anyone who has been to these venues at the times specified should monitor their health and if they develop any COVID-19 symptoms, even mild, get tested and isolate until they receive their test result.

Symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste, and fatigue.

The most up-to-date reliable information is available on the Queensland Health website at www.health.qld.gov.au/coronavirus.
