Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced changes to Queensland’s border bubble following an outbreak of COVID-19 in Moree.
From 12:01am on Friday (November 5) Moree will be declared a restricted border zone area.
It means residents of Moree will no longer have access across the Queensland border as part of the border bubble, except in exceptional circumstances: including essential healthcare.
It follows an outbreak that has so far spread to 33 cases in NSW.
This is in addition to three cases that were reported in Queensland.
The three cases, all in Goondiwindi, include people who have been in the community for four and five days.
Premier Palaszczuk also announced a change to border directions.
Unvaccinated people in the NSW border zone will no longer be able to come to Queensland to places and services that are available only to vaccinated people in NSW.
Queensland Health also issued a public health alert on Thursday for contact tracing locations at the Brisbane Domestic Airport.
