Queensland Health has urged Queenslanders to reconsider travel to Victoria after a man in his 30s recently tested positive to COVID-19.
The man tested positive after completing 14 days quarantine in a South Australian hotel.
“If you have been to an exposure site and are already in Queensland, or will enter Queensland prior to 1:00am on Thursday (May 13), you must call 134-COVID (13-42-68) and immediately travel by private transport home or to accommodation and quarantine for 14 days since you attended the venue,” a Queensland Health spokesperson said.
“Anyone arriving in Queensland after 1:00am on Thursday (May 13) who has been to a Victorian exposure site during the risk period identified is required to undertake mandatory hotel quarantine for 14 days. This is in accordance with the Interstate Exposure Venues Direction.
“If you have recently returned from Victoria or South Australia and not visited any listed exposure venues during the risk period, get tested if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, and isolate until you get the results and your symptoms resolve.
“We are asking all Queenslanders to continue to monitor the list of interstate exposure venues for 14 days after you arrive to ensure no new venues have been added.
“We are also asking all Queenslanders to reconsider travel to Victoria.”
