COVID-19: No new cases for Central Queensland

CENTRAL Queensland has not recorded more cases of coronavirus this weekend.

The number of cases in CQ remained at eight.

Queensland recorded 36 new confirmed cases over the weekend, raising the state total to 907. Today nine new cases were recorded for the state.

The last two cases in CQ were reported on Wednesday, a Yeppoon woman and woman from the Gladstone area.

Keppel MP Brittany Lauga said the Yeppoon woman had returned from overseas and self-isolated as soon as she got home.

"She was tested at Rockhampton Hospital in her car, so no health professionals had any contact with her, apart from the ones who swabbed her," Ms Lauga said.

"She is now in quarantine in her home."

Ms Lauga said the second confirmed case was in the Gladstone region.

"She has returned from overseas as well and is now in quarantine," she said.

On Friday, Queensland Health's data sheet recorded a ninth confirmed case of coronavirus for CQ, an error.

"The latest announcement of Covid-19 positive cases list nine in Central Queensland," Ms Lauga announced as she confirmed Queensland Health's error.

"This has been identified as a data error that will be corrected in Saturday's update."

Contact tracing has begun for the nine new cases recorded for Queensland today.

Most cases were people who had travelled overseas or had contact with a confirmed case who had travelled overseas.
