Third woman linked to 'criminal' trip at centre of Qld COVID scare

Two new Qld COVID-19 cases from Vic Logan Mayor supports COVID-19 response

In a letter this morning, Mr Pitt said the outside hours school care operated from Chatswood Hills State School and warned there was a chance "however remote" that students could have come into contact with the worker.

"There are no other school tours this week".

"It is incredibly important now more than ever if you are feeling sick you must go and get tested".

Queensland Health confirmed an employee at Park Ridge's Parklands Christian College in Logan returned a positive test Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier, police said one of the virus-positive women was upfront about where she had been in recent weeks, but the other had refused to give authorities her details.

"As a result of that, a lot of people are going to be inconvenienced".

A number of other staff members are in isolation "as a precautionary measure", Mr Cully added.

It's understood the case is connected to Chatswood Hills State School in Springwood.

Queensland Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said contact tracing was underway on the three new cases.

"Any staff that have had direct contact with this school tour have been instructed to take leave, not to attend the precinct and get tested for COVID-19", he said.

Police will allege they travelled to the COVID-19 hotspot and deliberately misled authorities when crossing back into Queensland.

"These young women have gone about their business with in the communities that they live in and so there will be a large amount of contact tracing to be done, largely within it the Logan and Springfield areas, including shopping malls, restaurants and a church", he said.

The pair, who flew back from Melbourne via Sydney on July 21 after travelling together, were active in the community for eight days before isolating.

The teens travelled on flights VA 863 and VA 977.

Three Queenslanders - including Ms Muranga and Ms Lasu - tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday.

"We want to ensure that everyone in Queensland, no matter where they are, what community they identify with, what language group they identify with, that everybody in Queensland knows what they can do to keep themselves and their community safe", Mr Miles said. "I keep myself at home to protect others but it's disappointing others aren't doing the right thing".

"This highlights why you need to declare if you've been to Victoria where there's been a high instance of community transmission".

The school has 700 students and about 46 teaching staff and 65 non-teaching staff according to the latest data from 2019 on the My School website.

Queensland locals returning will need to separate in a hotel for 14 days at their own expenditure.

"The school will temporarily close until further notification to allow for cleaning and work will commence on contact tracing".

Parents, grandparents and carers were "angry and disappointed" after being forced to queue for a coronavirus testing clinic set up at Parklands Christian College.

"What we have seen in these instances are deliberate acts of deception", Queensland Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said.

"There is a low risk that a student of a staff member could have been exposed to COVID-19", the Queensland Health letter read.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called on the premier to publicly release the health advice behind the decision to shut the border to anyone from Sydney.
