A Gympie truck driver who visited Bundaberg is one of three new COVID-19 cases announced in Queensland on Tuesday.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the truckie had tested positive in NSW, so the case would not be added to Queensland statistics.

However, the driver is believed to have visited Bundaberg while infectious.

The Fresh Fields FoodWorks on Thabeban Street has been listed as a low-risk contact site.

The period of concern is between 4:00pm-4:54pm on Saturday.

Other updated contact tracing locations include the BP Caboolture (southbound) on the Bruce Highway between 9:05pm and 9:35pm on Saturday.

The two new locally acquired cases which will be added to Queensland figures are an unvaccinated 17-year-old who lives on the Gold Coast and a woman from Melbourne aged in her 30s who was in home quarantine.

The teenager is believed to be linked to a family cluster over the NSW border in Tweed Heads.

Premier Palaszczuk said the Melbourne woman was considered to be low-risk however she said the latest cases were proof the State was not immune to the pandemic, and just one case could spark a massive outbreak.

The Premier warned that time was running out for Queenslanders to be fully vaccinated before the borders reopen on December 17.
