Queenslanders who visited any of the Sydney sites visited by a COVID-positive man have been instructed to quarantine themselves immediately.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Wednesday that more cases were likely to be confirmed in Sydney after a man tested positive to the virus.

NSW Health has released a list of exposure sites dating back to April 30.

On Wednesday Queensland’s chief health officer Jeannette Young said anyone who had visited the venues should not be getting on flights – they should be quarantined at home or in appropriate accommodation.

She also urged people who had visited the venues to get a COVID test as soon as possible on Thursday morning.

“We’re working closely with NSW to get a better understanding of the risk associated with this case so as an interim measure, we’re mirroring NSW Health’s advice,” she said.

“We’ll continue to assess the situation as more information comes to hand over the next 24 hours.”

People are encouraged to monitor the Queensland Health interstate exposure venue lists for 14 days after they arrive to make sure no new venues have been added.

There have been no new cases of COVID recorded in Queensland in the past 24 hours, with the State total sitting at 1,568.
