A school employee in Queensland is among two people that have tested positive to COVID-19 after returning from an interstate holiday in Melbourne and Sydney last week.
They were the first COVID-19 case outside quarantine since May.
The woman – who works at Parklands Christian College at Park Ridge in Brisbane’s south – was diagnosed with the virus on Tuesday.
The case marked four days since the last infection was recorded in Queensland, reigniting debate around the state’s border measures.
Meanwhile, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk today warned Queenslanders “now is not the time” to holiday south of the border”. She has also announced that Greater Sydney would be banned from entering Queensland from 1 am Saturday morning.
This comes after another 19 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in New South Wales today after a cluster emerged in Sydney’s east.
