Full list: Almost 180 Qld exposure sites after new community cases

Queensland health authorities have updated their list of exposure sites to almost 180, after new local cases of COVID-19 were reported and a snap lockdown, which has since been lifted, was extended for Brisbane and Moreton Bay.

Anyone who visited any of the close or casual contact sites now extending to additional Brisbane Airport locations and stores across the Westfield North Lakes Shopping Centre and the suburbs of Carina, Carindale and Tingalpa is urged to quarantine at home and get tested as soon as possible.

Five new community cases were reported on Saturday ahead of the remaining lockdown being lifted at 6pm, with contact tracers becoming confident they were getting ahead of the latest infections.

Eleven south-east Queensland local government areas, along with Townsville city and Palm and Magnetic islands, were ordered into a three-day lockdown until 6pm on Friday in response. That lockdown was lifted for all but Brisbane and Moreton Bay council regions, where it was extended for 24 hours.
