Logan City still being monitored for new COVID-19 cases

There have been no new cases of COVID-19 reported in Queensland overnight.

But Deputy Premier, Steven Miles says two regions of the southeast will continue to be monitored for any cases.

Chief Health Officer Doctor Jeanette Young says there were 12,000 tests reported on Saturday.

She has also revealed that two of three men who crossed the border from New South Wales had tested positive.

Dr Young says one of those two who stayed with a member of a family has now tested positive to COVID-19.

However, she hasn’t elaborated on whether the men were permitted to enter the state.

She says “The two COVID-positive men had minimal exposure in Queensland”.

It comes after five new cases emerged on Saturday, sparking fears a snap lockdown could be called.

All were family contacts of a young girl who tested positive a day earlier, spread across two households.

Her mother took her to get tested as soon as she had the slightest symptom, that of a headache.
