Queensland and New South Wales travellers

Queensland public health officials last night announced a new positive COVID-19 case in a person who breached Victoria lockdown rules and travelled from Melbourne, through regional New South Wales and into Queensland.

The husband of this positive case had originally tested negative but serology results in the past 24 hours showed that the couple are both towards the end of their illness.

The couple travelled through the New South Wales towns of Dubbo, Forbes, Gillenbah and Moree between June 1-4, and in Queensland through Toowoomba, Caloundra, Buddina and Baringa between June 5-8.
