Health warning issued for Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Brisbane youth detention cluster grows

Queensland Health has implemented urgent protection measures over the weekend after nine more people linked to the Brisbane youth detention centre cluster tested positive for COVID-19.

As such, a number of public health warnings have been issued, including for the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Ikea (Slacks Creek), Westfield Carindale, and the Ipswich Hospital.

There are now 10 confirmed COVID-19 cases linked to the youth detention centre cluster, including one new case confirmed this morning.

Queensland currently has 18 active cases of COVID-19 after the state confirmed 11 new infections of the coronavirus over the weekend.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young implemented new restrictions on aged care and other heath care facilities and hospitals across Greater Brisbane, and Ipswich and surrounds on Saturday.

The measures put in place on the weekend across the West Moreton, Metro North and Metro South Hospital and other health services include:

  • Residential aged care and disability accommodation services were placed into effective lockdown with visitors being restricted,
  • Public and private emergency departments were instructed to use PPE to treat all patients,
  • Public and private hospitals were also asked to restrict visitors as soon as possible.

Further, gatherings in homes and in public have been restricted to 10 people in the following local government areas: City of Brisbane, City of Ipswich, Logan City, Scenic Rim Region, Somerset Region, Lockyer Valley Region, Moreton Bay Region, Redlands City.

"This is a very significant issue and we need people to take it seriously," Dr Young said.

"Visits to aged and other care facilities in those areas need to again be postponed.

"Movement of staff between facilities needs to be reduced as much as reasonably possible."
