Queensland Health has added more locations to its contact tracing list, with Chief Health Officer Dr John Gerrard urging all Queenslanders to check it daily.
Among the latest “casual contact” locations is the Elements Music Festival held at Landcruiser Mountain Park at 669 Diaper Road, Kingaham.
The times of interest are from midnight Friday (December 17) to 2:30pm Sunday afternoon (December 19).
People who have been at the festival during the relevant times should immediately travel by private transport directly to their home or accommodation and quarantine, and get tested at their earliest opportunity.
They should continue to isolate until they receive a negative result.
They should also continue to monitor for symptoms and if they become symptomatic, get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result.

Dr Gerrard announced 59 new COVID cases in Queensland on Monday; with 43 cases of Omicron now confirmed in the State.
Health officials fear a graduation ceremony for Griffith University students last Monday is turning into an Omicron cluster, with 15 cases already linked to the event.
Like the music festival, above, the event has been listed as a “casual contact” event so anyone who attended is being asked to get a COVID test and isolate until they get a negative result.
There are currently 197 active COVID cases in the State, and although 66 people are in hospital, no one is in ICU.
Since December 13, four more cases have been added to the statistics attached to the Toowoomba Regional Council area.
Two cases were acquired locally from a known source and two are still under investigation.
