Logan’s Hyperdome shopping centre, a Shailer Park Chemist Warehouse, the Indooroopilly Fitness First gym and bus routes are among new additions to the state’s exposure site list across suburbs also including Toowong after 17 new community cases of COVID-19 were reported on Wednesday.
Anyone who has visited any of the close-contact sites is required to get tested, travel by private transport to their home or accommodation, fill out the online Queensland Health contact-tracing form and quarantine for 14 days, regardless of their test result.
The Shailer Park chemist has been deemed a close contact site after being visited by a person infectious with the virus between 2.30pm and 3.05pm on Monday.
New casual contact sites, requiring people to follow similar advice but quarantine only until they receive a negative result, include a number of stores in the Loganholme Hyperdome between 11.30am and 1.20pm on Saturday, spanning Coles, Robins Kitchen and Earth Markets.
Anyone who was at the broader centre across that period has been urged to get tested and monitor for symptoms.
The nearby Ampol service station has also been added to the casual contact site list, along with Toowong’s Transport and Main Roads Department site – visited by a person at 11.20am on Friday before a trip to Boost Juice in Toowong Village shopping centre 15 minutes later.
While not included in the official Health Department list, Stafford City shopping centre alerted customers via Facebook late on Wednesday that a person had visited Ispa Kebabs and the food court area between 11am and 11.20am on Saturday.
A number of sites across West End, including Tomra recycling centre, Mick’s Nuts and Coffee Mentality, have also been deemed close contact sites, with a number of other stores in the inner-city suburb also of concern.
