Queensland will report several instances of COVID-19 now, says health chief

The Bolton Clarke aged care facility in Pinjarra Hills is now on high alert, with all residents and staff to be tested.

The man's relatives are yet to test positive.

The trio have since been charged with one count each of providing false or misleading documents and fraud after allegedly providing false information on their border declarations.

The aged care worker is the 3rd case of neighborhood transmission connected to the cluster, after among the ladies's siblings evaluated positive previously today.

Haja Timbo, 21, Olivia Muranga, 19, and Diana Lasu, 21, are facing up to five years in jail after returning to Queensland from a trip to Melbourne, via Sydney.

Lasu and Muranga have since tested positive for coronavirus after they visited 11 venues in Brisbane.

Hundreds of people from the families of around 700 students at Parkland Christian College, where one of the women works as a cleaner, lined up for testing on Thursday.

Arif Mendes, who owns the restaurant told ACA: "People say we're in this together ... well clearly not for some people, that's disappointing".

She went to the doctor on Saturday, who said to get tested immediately, but she allegedly waited until Monday to do so.

Inconsiderate behaviour could be the difference between Queensland maintaining control of COVID-19 and "completely losing its grip on the virus", Dr Young said.

He said his sister waited several days in between experiencing symptoms and getting sick.

Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said additional police resources have been put in place to help manage traffic at the border.

"The likelihood she was infectious while at work is very low".

The three are in quarantine now and are due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on September 28.

"We are fairly comfortable that that's probably where he's got it but we will do contact tracing for him now as to who he might have come into contact with".

The Northern Territory has declared greater Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich as hot spots, shutting out millions of Queenslanders. There is also a mad rush from NSW residents trying to squeeze past the border to beat the 1am deadline on Saturday.

One of the women attended the Orion Springfield Central in Ipswich, south-west of Brisbane, on Sunday where she dined at the Peak Thai restaurant about 6.30pm.

It is believed the man contracted the virus from another person who had already gotten the virus from others who unknowingly had Covid19.
