It is vital that anyone in Queensland, especially if you’ve been interstate in the last 14 days, gets a COVID-19 test if you develop symptoms, even if mild. Symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste, and fatigue.

Anyone who has travelled through New South Wales and stopped in at the Crossroads Hotel between 3 and 10 July is urged to immediately get tested for COVID-19 and quarantine for 14 days. The hotel is situated in Casula in Southern Sydney on the Hume Highway and is very popular with freight drivers.

There are testing facilities right across the state including GPs, fever clinics and pop up clinics. To find your nearest location, visit the Queensland Health website.

The Queensland Health website now includes detailed information by Local Government Area on the number of active and recovered COVID-19 cases, likely source of infection, age and gender breakdowns of cases and number of self-quarantine notices.
