An investigation into the alleged incident is ongoing.

Yesterday, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk confirmed Queensland would also introduce a new “traffic light” system for all arrivals from 1am today.

Green means you’re free to enter Queensland, yellow means you’ve been to a hotspot and must isolate and get tested. Red means you can’t enter at all.

Residents of border communities travelling within the border region are exempt.
