Interstate exposure venues and hotspots

An interstate exposure venue is identified by another state, territory or Queensland safe travel zone country (e.g. New Zealand). This is a place where a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 has been. The Interstate Exposure Venues Direction outlines the requirements for anyone who has been to an interstate exposure venue.

Hotspots are places in states or territories other than Queensland, or in safe travel zone countries where Queensland health officials have found a lot of people with COVID-19, or places that are at risk of a lot of COVID-19 infections. The Border Restrictions Direction outlines the restrictions that apply to anyone who has been to a COVID-19 hotspot.

Help prevent the spread of COVID-19

To prevent the spread:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested then isolate at home until you get the results and your symptoms resolve
  • Stay 1.5 metres away from other people—think two big steps
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser
  • Leave a location if it is crowded.

If you have any concerns about your health, or are unsure if you need to get tested or isolate, or contact 134 COVID (134 268).

Contact tracing for COVID-19

If a person gets a positive test result for COVID-19, we do what is called ‘contact tracing’. This is to prevent the virus spreading further through the community. It is the same process that we use with other contagious viruses like measles.

As part of this process, we speak to the sick person to find out who might have had close contact with them when they would have been infectious.

If there are people who had close contact with the sick person, our staff get in touch with them directly. If they start showing symptoms, we get them assessed faster and take the right action.

If we can’t find the people who had been in close contact with a person who tested positive, we will issue an alert on our website and through media and social media. This lists the dates, times and places where the sick person was. We ask the public who may have had contact with that sick person at one of those times or places to contact us.

Close contact

A close contact is a person who has:

  • had face-to-face contact for any amount of time or shared a closed space for at least 1 hour with a confirmed case during their infectious period
  • been to a venue or location where the risk of transmission is considered high based on public health assessment.

The local public health unit will tell you if you have been deemed a close contact of someone who has COVID-19. They may direct you to quarantine for 14 days. If you get sick with any COVID-19 symptoms during that period, even mild, get tested immediately.

If you haven’t already been contacted by health authorities and think you should be deemed a close contact of a confirmed case, call 134 COVID (134 268).

How to verify a message about contact tracing

We have received reports of COVID-19 themed hoax text messages (SMS) and emails. If you are a genuine close contact the Public Health Team will continue to attempt to make contact, generally from a private number.

To verify if a contact tracing message received is genuine, call the public health unit closest to you. We will never ask you for passwords or financial information. Read more about COVID-19 hoaxes and scams.

How we classify COVID-19 cases

  • Overseas acquired: the person was infected while in another country
  • Interstate acquired: the person was infected in another Australian state
  • Locally acquired—close contact with confirmed case: the person was infected in Queensland, but the source of the infection has been identified, for example a household or workplace contact.
  • Locally acquired—no known contact (may also be called community transmission): the person was infected in Queensland and the source of the infection hasn't been found through contact tracing and further testing.

Sustained community transmission is when we have multiple cases of locally acquired COVID-19 where the contact tracing and testing is unable to identify how the person was infected.

This means that the virus has been passed to one or more people, who have then gone on to infect other people. When this happens, the virus can begin spreading very quickly and additional restrictions may be put in place to stop the spread.

We use genomic (DNA) sequencing to compare samples of confirmed cases and link them to other known cases.
