"The impact on Sydney services is very disappointing for the airport, tourism operators and local people, but we appreciate that health and safety needs to be the priority at this time", Ms White said.

Gold Coast police Chief Superintendent Mark Wheeler said the Brisbane woman probably thought she could slip through the checkpoint in the early morning because police wouldn't be vigilant.

"The Queensland Police Service consistently reviews Queensland Border Declarations to ensure accurate and reliable information has been provided".

'Further investigations revealed that her objective of travel was untrue, ' police said in the statement.

The woman was transported into hotel quarantine where she remains.


The man, who is in quarantine, flew into Maroochydore from Sydney on July 31 on Jetstar flight JQ790.

The cases are linked to the infected young women who allegedly sneaked across the border from Melbourne - and continued to visit shops, bars and restaurants, despite feeling sick.

He said it's possible that the workforce at the Pinjarra Hills Bolton Clarke has relationships with other workers at other aged care facilities.

The operators of a Brisbane Brisbane nursing home where a staff member has tested positive for coronavirus, has provided an update on the situation as all staff and residents are tested.

Olivia Winnie Muranga and Diana Lasu are expected to face further action from police regarding their trip to Melbourne and their actions on returning to Brisbane.


Finally getting tested on Monday, it's understood Ms Muranga was out in the community before her positive test result came back on Tuesday, with customers at the African Grocery Shop at Woodridge and the Grand Plaza shopping centre at Browns Plains warned they may have been in contact with a COVID case on Monday.

They are now at the centre of the new COVID-19 cluster, along with another 21-year-old woman Haja Timbo.

All three have since been charged with fraud and providing false or misleading documents under the Public Health Act and are due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on 28 September.

Community transmission had actually been removed in the state for 2 months prior to those infections.

She is now working with authorities to determine all the locations she has been to while infectious.


'She and her hubby have actually been definitely model residents, they actually and really have actually been amazingly wonderful, ' Queensland Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young stated.
