ALDI, Woolworths supermarket among new COVID-19 exposure sites in southeast Queensland
ALDI and Woolworths stores in Queensland are among new COVID-19 exposure sites listed by health officials on Friday night.
Queensland Health added the new exposure sites after confirming a person has tested positive for the virus in southeast Brisbane after being infectious in the community for two days.
“This is in relation to a new case. Contact tracing and investigation is underway, with more details to be released once available tomorrow,” the authority said in a statement.
The case comes with authorities trying to find the missing link that spread the virus to a Gold Coast man, who tested positive on Wednesday.
Deputy Chief Health Officer Peter Aitken said the man was genomically linked to NSW clusters but had not travelled interstate.
“So we don’t know how he’s got COVID at this stage,” he told reporters.
“What it does mean is that we need everyone at Gold Coast to come forward and get tested, more important to get vaccinated.”
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath urged people to get tested as the person who passed on COVID-19 to the man could still be infectious in the community.
If you are a close contact you must isolate immediately, get tested and stay in isolation for 14 days regardless of test results.

Minister D’Ath said Queensland was not planning to change travel rules for South Australia after 18 new local cases emerged there on Thursday.
“We’re not making any changes at this point but we are watching it very, very closely,” Ms D’Ath said.
Meanwhile, businesses are urging the state government to unveil more details about its vaccine mandate for venues, which comes into force in two weeks.
Unvaccinated people will be barred from all venues in Queensland from December 17.
People who have not had two doses of a vaccine by then will not be allowed to work in or enter restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, theatres, cinemas or sports stadiums.
The government has not released formal health directions on the mandate, with Ms D’Ath saying that will happen around December 10.
