Queensland Health has released an updated list of exposure sites linked to the latest COVID-19 case.

In good news, the Toowoomba location, and several other preliminary sites identified on Wednesday afternoon, have been removed from the “close contact” list.

They are now classified as “casual contact” locations.

However, people who have visited any of the close or casual locations must get tested and fill in a Contact Tracing Form.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young confirmed on Thursday morning both the woman – confirmed positive on Wednesday – and her husband had now tested positive to COVID-19.

She said they both appeared to be at a late stage of infection.

Dr Young said there were no plans at this stage to lock down aged care facilities, hospitals or jails.

However, she urged anyone who had had attended any of the exposure sites to get tested as soon as possible and isolate until they get a negative result.

Queensland Health has identified 17 close contacts of the original couple, including the parents in the Caloundra household where the couple was staying. So far, all have tested negative.
