Queensland is Closing Its Borders to People From Greater Sydney

"We have planned for this, we have exercised this. everyone in Queensland can have confidence that what we are doing to protect our state is working extremely well", she said.

COVID fines in Queensland are nearing $3m, with border cheaters slugged more than $60,000 in penalties last month alone as police work overtime to catch out the liars who are putting the lives of Queenslanders in peril.

Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr. Jeannette Young said: "Contact tracing is underway on all new cases".

The women responsible are Diana Lasu, 21, and Olivia Winnie Muranga, 19, who allegedly lied on their border declarations about where they had been when they arrived in Brisbane from Melbourne via Sydney on July 21.

POLICE have confirmed a 51-year-old woman will face court for allegedly breaching COVID-19 border directions after she was found at a Gympie address this morning.

The woman was issued a notice to appear at Gympie Magistrates Court on November 30 and was taken to hotel quarantine, where she remains.

It comes after two women tested positive to the coronavirus on Tuesday night after returning to Brisbane from Melbourne and Sydney, and continuing to work and socialise throughout the city's southside while infectious.

Police, however, admit they are not manning every single entry point into Queensland around the clock, with Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski saying "they are not staffed 24/7 necessarily way out in the remote parts".


One of the 19-year-olds instead worked for three days before going off sick.

"So at the moment we have two people who have been to Melbourne and back that have tested positive, the other one is not yet positive, that person has had action initiated against them and the other two remain under investigation".

Police and health authorities at Parklands Christian College on Wednesday morning. There is also a number of close contacts in both of their households.

"They went to extraordinary lengths to be deceitful and deceptive and quite frankly criminal in their behaviour and that is what has put the community at risk", she said.

At the time, Tweed Byron police warned travellers to pack snacks and enough water amid frustrating wait times.

"This reflects suspended or significantly reduced capacity into other Queensland ports", Ms White said.

"I'm absolutely furious this has happened, that these two people have gone to Victoria, have come back and have given misleading information to authorities".
