El Paso Striken With Serious Surge Of Coronavirus Cases

Where to get a COVID test in Qld

In reaction to a cluster of COVID-19 infections in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney, the Queensland government has announced new restrictions.

The new measures include:

- Anyone entering Queensland from parts of NSW and greater Sydney has been asked to get tested for COVID-19 on arrival and self-quarantine until results come back negative

- From 1am Sunday anyone entering the state from New South Wales must fill in a border pass declaration

- Police have also begun randomly checking cars that cross the state border

- People travelling from the Northern Beaches region must apply for an exemption to enter Queensland, and will also need to complete 14 days of hotel quarantine.

 

Red zone: Sydneysiders forced to get COVID test to enter QLD

 

 

 

With a pre-Christmas surge of travellers expected across the Queensland-New South Wales and through Brisbane and Gold Coast Airports over the next few days this is where you can get a Coronavirus test:
