West Moreton Health announced three new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, bringing the total to 13 cases for the West Moreton region.
Queensland has 78 new confirmed cases of novel coronavirus. There are now 397 COVID-19 cases across the state.
Contact tracing is underway for the 78 new cases.
The majority of cases are from patients who have travelled overseas, or have had direct contact with a confirmed case who had travelled overseas.
A Queensland Health spokesperson said that while the number of confirmed cases is expected to vary each day, every one of us has a part to play in stopping the spread of the virus.
“We want everyone to know they can play their part to protect themselves and the more vulnerable in our community. Please follow the recommended advice from us and our federal counterparts in regards to social distancing, public gatherings and general wellbeing,” a Queensland Health spokesperson said.
“Critically, make sure you are practicing good hygiene and staying home if you’re sick.
“Washing your hands properly and often is the gold standard of health advice that can help prevent viruses from entering your body.”
Queensland Health is urging anyone who has been overseas in the last 14 days and has a fever or any respiratory symptoms to see a doctor immediately.
Call ahead to the GP surgery and let them know your symptoms and travel history to help them prepare for your arrival.
