Queensland Health says the hotspot declaration for Victoria will remain in place for at least another seven days following the extension of the lockdown in Victoria.

Acting Chief Health Officer Dr Sonya Bennett said Qld Health would continue to monitor the situation in Victoria.

“We’ve seen how quickly COVID-19 can run rampant, and that Victoria is still identifying unlinked cases, which is why we’re keeping the hotspot declaration in place for a little while longer,” she said.

“We’ll review it in seven days, in line with the Victorian lockdown of Greater Melbourne.”

Anyone who has been in Victoria in the past 14 days is not allowed to enter Queensland unless they are a returning Queensland resident, except for a limited range of people who can enter for an essential purpose. 

Anyone who is allowed to enter Queensland will be required to go into 14 days mandatory hotel quarantine.

NSW Health also released a list of declared COVID-19 exposure sites on Wednesday night.

Dr Bennett said anyone who has been in NSW on or since May 19 should check the list of exposure sites.

“We’ll continue to monitor NSW also, but right now, all Queenslanders need to be concerned about there is those exposure sites,” she said.

Anyone in Queensland who has been to a declared COVID-19 exposure site in NSW during the risk period specified is automatically required to home quarantine.

If you have recently returned from NSW 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.
