QLD is texting residents in COVID-19 case areas

By Juliano Oliveira

Residents who live in suburbs visited by a confirmed COVID-19 case may have received a text alert from the Queensland Health Department.

More messages may be sent along the week as the list of places visited by the cases “will be updated as more locations are identified”, wrote Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk on Twitter.

One new case of coronavirus was recorded overnight in the state. It is a relative of a confirmed case linked to the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre at Wacol.

There are now 18 active cases in Queensland.
