Queensland Health has added more contact tracing locations to its public health alert about the latest COVID-19 clusters in Brisbane.

The latest list – which details more than 200 Close, Casual or Low Risk locations – can be found on the Queensland Health website

It includes sites in New Farm, Kangaroo Point, Woolloongabba and Forest Lake, on top of the locations at Eumundi, Noosaville, Noosa Heads, Sunshine Beach, Carina, Carindale and Tingalpa announced at the weekend.

Health officials are urging residents to regularly check this list as it is being continually updated. 

There were four more locally acquired cases of COVID-19 announced on Monday.

The good news,  according to Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young, is that she does not believe the highly contagious Delta variant is circulating in the Queensland community.

All the latest cases are the Alpha variant.

There are now 23 cases related to the Portuguese restaurant and the Greek Community Centre outbreak.

Of the 47 active cases in Queensland, 38 people are hospital.

There are 3122 people in hotel quarantine, which prompted Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to renew her call for dedicated quarantine facilities to be built in Queensland.

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, there have been three cases recorded in the South Burnett Regional Council area: two acquired overseas, and one acquired interstate.

In the Toowoomba Regional Council area,  there has been a total of 47 cases – including 37 acquired overseas, nine acquired locally (contacts known) and one interstate. Two people have died.

There are currently no active cases in the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service region; and a total of 22,391 vaccine doses have been administered.
