Queensland confirms new case of COVID 19 linked to returning truck driver
A new coronavirus case has been confirmed in southeast Queensland, according to health officials of state.
On Friday, a four-year-old girl tested positive for the virus, placing her daycare centre in Mt Warren Park, Logan into isolation.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, she went to the Boulevard Early Learning Centre.
Her case is linked to a Queensland truck driver who tested positive for Covid-19 after returning from NSW on Thursday on the Gold Coast. From August 28 to September 1, the person, from Windaroo in Logan, was potentially infectious in the community for up to five days.
More information on the latest case will be released on Saturday, according to Queensland Health.
Regardless of a negative result, children, workers, and visitors to the Boulevard Early Learning Centre should come forward and get tested right away, then quarantine at home with their family for 14 days.
Children who attend Windaroo State School use the childcare centre for after-school care. All students, employees, and visitors who attended Windaroo State School between August 31 and September 3 should quarantine for 14 days.
Ms Palaszczuk said she would stand firm on borders until then.
“You open up this state and you let the virus in here and every child under 12 is vulnerable, every single child,” she said in Queensland parliament.
