Brisbane outbreak and requirement to follow listed public exposure sites. The situation with respect to the outbreak in Brisbane is evolving rapidly and the Queensland Government has released an updated list of public exposure sites associated with the outbreak. These can be found at https://www.qld.gov.au/.../current-status/contact-tracing .

It is a requirement under Queensland public health orders to follow the listed requirements for close, casual and low-risk sites whilst in Queensland. Here on the island, it is a requirement under local directions for people who have frequented the listed public exposure site at the time specified time to immediately self-isolate at home or in their accommodation and contact NIHRACS on 22091 for further advice. Anyone who has arrived from Queensland since Friday 17 September needs to check the above website to ensure that they have not frequented any of the current sites. Since the list is growing daily you also need to check the new exposure sites being listed each day.

Over the next 24 to 48 hours the extent of any seeding into the Queensland community is likely to become apparent.EMT is monitoring the situation and will determine if any further local requirements are necessary.
