THE West Moreton Health region has recorded its first cases of coronavirus, with two people testing positive.
A 51-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman are in self-isolation.
Queensland Health can confirm all cases remain isolated in appropriate accommodation to prevent the spread of the virus and all patients are currently stable.
Contact tracing is still underway for these new cases.
Queensland Health will notify the community if any other alerts are required.
In a Facebook post, West Moreton Health said, “Testing for Covid-19 is only available for people who are feeling unwell and have travelled overseas in the past 14 days, or have had contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19”.
The post continued, “If you haven’t been overseas or been in contact with a confirmed case, you will not be tested for novel coronavirus because it is more likely you have another virus such as a cold or influenza.
“If you meet the criteria for testing, you should contact a doctor immediately. Before your appointment, please call ahead and advise of your symptoms and recent travel so they can prepare for your visit.”
Queensland Health is advising people to stay at home if they are feeling unwell, avoid touching your face, nose and mouth, stay 1.5m away from people who are coughing and sneezing, cover your sneezes and coughs and wash hands regularly.
