UPDATE, TUESDAY, AUGUST 25: Since releasing its initial list of places visited by positive COVID-19 cases connected to the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre, Queensland Health has issued an update, adding further locations. The below article and list has been amended to reflect this.

Sneezing into our elbows, maintaining a 1.5-metre distance from other people, and washing our hands thoroughly and often: they're just some of the practices that Australians have adopted in 2020 in response to COVID-19. So is paying particular attention to where we've all been, which links into ongoing contact-tracing efforts — because naming locations and venues that positive coronavirus cases have visited is a crucial part of the country's containment strategy.

That includes in Queensland, where state authorities have been issuing health alerts outlining places that residents should note. By now, it has become a familiar routine: if you've visited these spots on the dates and during the times outlined, you should monitor your health, and self-isolate and get a test for COVID-19 if you start suffering from even the mildest of symptoms.

Today, Sunday, August 23, Queensland Health has released its latest list, in response to a growing number of cases it is calling the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre cluster. Spanning places in Brisbane's west and southeast, and dating between Sunday, August 9–Friday, August 21, it's a lengthy rundown.

The big ones: IKEA in Slacks Creek, covering anyone who went looking for affordable Swedish furniture between 11am–2pm on Friday, August 14; various stores at Browns Plains Grand Plaza, spanning different dates and times; a number of shops at Forest Lake Shopping Centre, again at varying dates and times; and a selection of retailers at Westfield Carindale on Wednesday, August 19. But again, this is a very comprehensive list — with places in Birkdale, Browns Plains, Camp Hill, Carina Heights, Carindale, Crestmead, Forest Lake, Greenbank, Greenslopes, Marsden, Mt Gravatt, Slacks Creek and Wacol all named.
