With new COVID-19 cases in Queensland, including the Gold Coast, Queensland Health has expanded its list of venues where confirmed COVID-19 cases have visited. This includes a number of venues on the Gold Coast in Pimpama, Coomera, Upper Coomera, Oxenford and Southport and in the Greater Brisbane region.
Anyone who may have visited these locations on certain dates and times, is advised to monitor their health and, if they develop even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms, stay home, and get tested. There are a range of testing options on the Gold Coast and also in other regions.
And new restrictions have come into effect from 8am today for the Toowoomba, South Burnett, Southern Downs, Western Downs, Goondiwindi regions and Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire. These restrictions were introduced on the Gold Coast on Saturday (August 29) and for Greater Brisbane on August 22.
Under the restrictions, gatherings in homes and in public have been restricted to 10 people (except at venues where the businesses have a COVID-safe plan) and there are also restrictions on visitors to residential aged care and disability accommodation services and public and private hospitals.
