Queenslanders are again on high alert after another new outbreak of Covid-19 was reported on Tuesday.

A woman, aged in her 20s, tested positive after travelling from Covid-hotspot Victoria and visited many locations across the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Cairns.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young outlined her movements and urged anyone who had visited the locations to get tested immediately.

LOCATIONS VISITED BY THE COVID-POSITIVE CASE

TUESDAY JULY 13: The woman travelled from Melbourne to Maroochydore on Tuesday July 13.

THURSDAY JULY 15: She received an SMS from Victoria Health advising she had attended a ‘Tier 1’ exposure site at the Young and Jackson Pub.

She went and got tested that day and tested negative.

That afternoon, she then visited a friend at Maroochydore and went to the Universal Store at Sunshine Coast Plaza between 3.55pm and 4.15pm.

That night, she visited Rice Boi at Mooloolaba Wharf – a very popular restaurant which has authorities particularly concerned.

She then flew to Cairns on Virgin flight VA791.

She arrived in Cairns and has been isolating since then.

SUNDAY JULY 18:

She went to the Atherton fever clinic and was tested on July 18.

MONDAY JULY 19: She returned a positive Covid test late last night, Monday July 19.

Health authorities hold particular concerns for anyone who attended Rice Boi, given she spent many hours there and did not need to wear a mask while seated and eating.

Deputy Premier Steven Miles said the current mask mandate in southeast Queensland was expected to have limited the risk of her potential transmission.
