Health authorities have urged passengers who flew on a domestic Qantas flight last week to seek advice after a case of COVID-19 was confirmed on board.
The warning relates to QF614 from Melbourne to Brisbane on Wednesday, April 22.
Queensland health minister Steven Miles said the confirmed case was acquired overseas from a known cruise ship.
He said anyone who was on last Wednesday’s flight should contact 13 HEALTH and seek advice.
Those who were in proximity to the confirmed case may be asked to go into quarantine, however not all passengers will be required to.
All passengers on the plane are asked to call 13 HEALTH.
The case is the only new COVID-19 case recorded in the state today, as the state lifts some strict lockdown restrictions.
“Queenslanders are doing a great job of maintaining distance … which is just fantastic,” Mr Miles said.
Yesterday Queensland recorded its fifth straight day of zero cases.
The pleasing results saw Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk lift some lockdown measures from today, with residents now allowed to travel up to 50km from their homes for “recreational purposes”.
This means they can drive for non-essential reasons, have picnics, visit parks, shop for non-essential items, and ride motorbikes, jet skis and boats for fun.
Some rules still apply — social distancing measures must be obeyed and people can’t stray more than 50km from their homes. Members of the same household can go out together and people who live alone can go out with one other person.
Ms Palaszczuk asked all residents “to enjoy the relaxation, but continue to follow the rules”.
