States and territories around the country have introduced border restrictions for people travelling from Queensland after the state recorded one new local case of COVID.
The case, announced on Friday, was detected in a 26-year-old man and is linked to Princess Alexandra Hospital doctor who was diagnosed on March 12.
It was also confirmed the man, a landscaper, had the coronavirus variant first reported in the UK, which is more contagious.
Authorities have listed 11 exposure sites visited by the 26-year-old including the shopping centre in Carindale and Bunnings, Aldi and Guzman y Gomez outlets in Stafford.
