Statement regarding Victoria cases
04 February 2021
Following the announcement of a case of COVID-19 in a staff member in a Victorian quarantine hotel, Queensland is monitoring the situation closely and awaiting more information from Victorian health authorities.
Anyone who has been in Greater Melbourne since 29 January and arrived into Queensland should come forward and get tested – even if you do not have symptoms – and isolate until they receive a result.
We also ask those people to check the Department of Health and Human Services website regarding the venues of concern. Advice from Victoria is that people who have been in those venues of concern should isolate for 14 days. Please follow that advice if you are in Queensland. If you’ve been to any of these venues, please call 13HEALTH.
As a precaution, we will be restricting visitors to vulnerable facilities including aged care, hospitals, disability accommodation and corrective services.
You can find a list of testing clinics at www.qld.gov.au/covid19testing
There is no decision at this time to close the border but we are asking Queenslanders to reconsider travel to Victoria.
