A Woolworths supermarket, a Subway store and two 7-Elevens have been listed as COVID-19 exposure sites after Queensland recorded five more locally-acquired coronavirus cases overnight.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced on Saturday morning that Brisbane and Moreton Bay residents would be released from stay-at-home orders from 6pm but stressed: “we are not out of the woods yet”.

Queensland now has 47 active cases, including the five new community cases.

These include a baggage handler at Brisbane airport, whose positive result was picked up by routine testing. The man, 50, lives in Carindale and is not linked to a known contact.

A Brisbane man, 29, who travelled to Eumundi on June 27 for a holiday has tested positive and his infection has been linked to his relative who was recorded as a known positive case – a woman from the Carindale Greek Community Centre.
