A restaurant in Gold Coast and several flights across the state were added to Queensland’s exposure site list after a new local case was recorded on Friday.

The Koi dining venue at Broadbeach was added as a close contact for Wednesday, July 14, with anyone who was at the venue at the listed time to isolate immediately and contact Queensland Health.

The updated alert comes after a regional flight attendant tested positive to the highly contagious strain of Covid-19 and was potentially infectious while working on six flights across the state.

She also stayed at the Mercure Hotel in Gladstone on July 11. Those who visited the Brisbane, Longreach and Gladstone domestic airports on Sunday, July 13, and the Brisbane, Gladstone and Hervey Bay domestic airports on Monday, July 12, have been told to monitor for symptoms.

Chief health officer Jeanette Young urged all residents in the remote communities to come forward for testing as her team races to figure out where the infection came from.

“Those people who live in Longreach, Gladstone or Hervey Bay — it is really important that you come forward and get tested if you have any symptoms,” she told reporters on Friday morning.

“Just be aware. Similarly, we are working through with CCTV footage at the Brisbane airport and other airports to see who else this flight attendant might have come into contact with.”
