Public health alerts for two Virgin flights between Brisbane and Sydney

Two new Virgin flights between Brisbane and Sydney have been listed as possible exposure sites as Queensland records three new local cases of coronavirus on the state’s first day of its lockdown.
The three new cases were close contacts of existing infections and include the younger brother of a 19-year-old casual receptionist at Prince Charles Hospital.
A close contact of the Portuguese restaurant cluster and a close contact of a Virgin flight crew member were also among the new cases announced today.
“We are considering these low risk,” she said.
“So this is very good news.”
Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said the brother of the unvaccinated hospital worker had visited Magnetic Island and became infectious on June 26.
He attended a school holiday tennis camp at Shaw Park Tennis Centre at Wooloowin on June 28, areas of concern contract tracers will be targeting to prevent the rampant spread of the virus.
The Virgin crew member worked on several flights whilst infectious.
Public health teams this afternoon issued alerts for two new Saturday flights from Brisbane to Sydney and a Newstead apartment building on Friday.
“They were in quarantine and we’re just working through whether they were out and about before they went into quarantine during their infectious period,” Dr Young said.
The close contact linked to the Portuguese restaurant cluster was in hotel quarantine during their entire infectious period.
