Brisbanites Who Visited These Southside and West Moreton Venues Should Monitor for Symptoms
Positive COVID-19 cases have been linked to 15 more shops and eateries.
Queensland Health has advised that any Brisbanites who visited a number of eateries and venues in the city's south and West Moreton should monitor their health and immediately get tested if they present any symptoms, with the state's latest COVID-19 case linked to 15 locations.
The government body sent out a public health alert last night, on Friday, July 31, detailing the places linked to yesterday's one new case of COVID-19. The new case is a 27-year-old man who dined at the Madtongsan IV restaurant in Sunnybank at the same time as a young woman who was diagnosed earlier in the week, according to Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
The list of spots is lengthy, as is the time period affected, with the latter spanning from Sunday, July 26–Wednesday, July 29.
In Mount Gravatt, those who visited JB Hifi, Kmart, Mos Burger or Chatime at Garden City Shopping Centre between 4–7pm on July 26 must monitor for symptoms. Visitors to Bunnings in Springfield and Oxley, Nando's Kenmore and Caltex in Wacol or Goodna at various times between July 26–28, must do the same, too. The full list of venues, dates and times is available in Queensland Health's public health alert.
Earlier this week, Queensland Health released a list of venues visited by two Queenslanders who returned from Melbourne via Sydney, failed to self-quarantine and tested positive to the coronavirus. It's asking any Brisbanites who visited the lengthy of spots between Wednesday, July 23–Tuesday, July 28. to immediately quarantine and contact 13 HEALTH to get tested. Queensland Health is continuing to update a master list of venues linked to known cases over here.
In response to the new cases, Queensland has closed its borders to anyone who has been to the Greater Sydney area in the past 14 days. The NT has also declared the City of Brisbane, City of Ipswich and Logan City hotspots, and closed its borders to anyone who has visited those areas — as well as other hotspots across NSW and Victoria.
As has been the advice for months now, anyone with symptoms — coughs, fever, sore or scratchy throat, shortness of breath or loss of smell or taste — who lives in any part of Brisbane is also encouraged to get tested and self-isolate while awaiting results.
