Qld records four new local cases

Queensland has recorded four new local cases of coronavirus overnight, all linked to the existing Indooroopilly cluster.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queensland Health have linked the new Cairns case – a 60-year-old taxi driver – announced on Sunday to the reef pilot who tested positive last week.

“So the marine pilot actually travelled in that person’s taxi. A lot of contact tracing is now happening of course with those exposure sites but it is great to know that linkage has been done so honestly, great work by our Queensland Health staff,” she said.

Of the four new local cases, three are linked to Ironside State School and one is a household contact with Brisbane Grammar School.

There was also one new case in hotel quarantine overnight.

There are more than 12,000 people in home quarantine in Brisbane.

South-east Queensland emerged from an eight-day lockdown on Sunday afternoon, but restrictions remain in place including compulsory masks for teachers and high school students as well as a ban on community sport and a 10-person household limit.
