Qld has six new local cases, Brisbane back to ‘stage two’ restrictions today

Queensland has recorded six new local cases of coronavirus.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has so far stopped short of calling a lockdown but more restrictions will be implemented.

From 4pm, residents of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Moreton, Townsville and Palm Island will move back to stage two restrictions, to avoid a lockdown at this stage.

This includes only 30 people in homes and one person per four square metres in cafes and restaurants.

Four of the new cases are linked to the aviation worker cluster.

Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said the aviation cluster – which now stands at 7 – was likely to have started on September 20.

There is also another case – a woman from Camp Hill who had been in Kyogle in northern NSW – as well as another who flew from Melbourne to Brisbane on September 27.

There have been no further cases from the Sydney truck driver who had been infectious in Brisbane for eight days.
