Static roadside drug and breath testing has resumed in the South Burnett after a suspension due to COVID-19.

Police officers were out in force in Kingaroy on Thursday testing drivers in Kingaroy Street, Kingaroy.

Multi-vehicle breath-testing sites had previously been suspended throughout Queensland to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to minimise health risks to police and the community.

However, random and targeted breath tests continued throughout the suspension period.
