Where COVID-positive worker visited

A Queensland hotel worker has tested positive for COVID-19.

The woman is a cleaner at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Spring Hill who is believed to have come into contact with the virus there as it serves as one of the state's quarantine venues for overseas travellers.

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE LIST OF SITES THE CLEANER VISITED

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said sites the cleaner had visited while infectious included a train at 4pm from Central Station to Altandi Station on January 2.

She said the cleaner had done one shift at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in January 2.

The cleaner is a woman in her 20s from Algester, and anyone living in that suburb should consider getting tested.

Queensland Health has released a list of venues she visited, which will update as more information comes to hand. See it here.

Contract tracers are continuing to work with the cleaner about places she had been while infectious from January 2. She was tested on January 6.

Other suburbs she has visited include Calamvale and Sunnybank.

Health Minister Yvette D'Ath said Queensland Health had made sure more testing was available, particularly in those suburbs.

Dr Young said now was the time for anyone with any symptoms anywhere in Brisbane to come forward for testing.

She said they would be directly contacting people who they want to get tested.

"We are standing up more testing clinics," Dr Young said.

Dr Young said she believed workers in hotel quarantine should now be tested every shift, instead of the current routine of every seven days.

She praised the woman for doing the right thing.

 

 

Ms D'Ath said the case was the first involving someone working in a quarantine hotel in Queensland during the coronavirus pandemic, and the first locally acquired case in Queensland in 113 days.
