A Gold Coast childcare centre and several Brisbane cafes and barbers have been added to Queensland’s growing list of exposure sites after one new locally acquired case of Covid-19 was announced.
The new case – a man in his 40s who had travelled from China – tested negative upon completing the two weeks of hotel quarantine.
Queensland’s list of close contacts has been updated to include locations spanning the Gold Coast and Brisbane, including a Goodstart Early Learning childcare centre in Parkwood visited several times between July 12-23.

Chief health officer Jeannette Young said the man returned to his home on the Gold Coast on July 12 and became unwell the day after.
“We got a second test done and that’s come back at a moderate level of CT value, which means there’s a reasonable amount of virus,” Dr Young said.
“That means he’s definitely at the acute stage of a new infection.”
Travellers who have been to the following locations are advised to get tested as early as possible and quarantine:
