Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young

September 5, 2020

Queensland Health reported one new case of COVID-19 on Saturday, a woman aged in her 60s living on Russell Island.

Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said the case was believed to be linked to an earlier confirmed case, part of the Wacol cluster.

“We want to reassure the people of Russell Island and other islands in the area that we’ve been planning for situations like this and we are well prepared to ensure that their health needs are taken care of,” Dr Young said.

“Contact tracing is under way and we will continue to assess the situation and provide the local community with the relevant advice as more information comes to light.

“Metro South Health is currently planning to set-up a pop-up COVID-19 testing clinic at the Russell Island Recreation Hall, 2 High St, Russell Island, near the ferry terminal.

“They are also in the process of arranging for the patient to be transferred to the mainland.

“While we are still determining where the virus may have been acquired, we are working closely with this patient to gather necessary information, including other places she may have visited whilst infectious.”

“Vigilance is key to keeping community transmission out of the islands and out of Queensland.”

Dr Young urged people with COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, to get tested.
