The locally acquired case was a woman in her 50s who lives in Brisbane’s northern suburb of Fitzgibbon. She was infectious in the community for 10 days.
Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said she was not linked to a previous cluster and had not visited any of the exposure sites listed on the website. 
“I encourage and please ask anyone who lives particularly in the northern part of Brisbane to come forward and get tested, even if you have the mildest of symptoms,” she told reporters on Monday.
“At this stage, there are no close links that we’ve been able to identify, she hasn’t been to any known exposure sites. So all of the exposure sites that she’s been at while infectious are up on our website and we’ll continue to work with her to make sure that we’ve picked all of those up.”
Dr Young said the woman was fully vaccinated and all her household contacts had tested negative.
“I am reasonably reassured by all of that. But it would be good to see that enhanced testing response that we see every single time from Queenslanders.”

NRL Grand Final
Thousands of footy fans packed Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium for the NRL Grand Final on Sunday night.
The government was forced to reduce the stadium capacity for the decider to 75 per cent following local coronavirus cases in South East Queensland.
Asked about COVID-19 compliance at the game, Deputy Premier Steven Miles responded: “I think the compliance with mask wearing in and out of the stadium until people got to their seats, I thought was very high.”
He added: “Obviously once people sit down, many of them had beers and food and that kind of thing but I think compliance was very good, particularly where there’s that risk of intermingling.”
