Queensland private school closed after employee tests positive for COVID-19

The Parklands Christian College in Logan south of Brisbane has been closed for deep cleaning after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The woman, who is under isolation, tested positive late yesterday after returning from interstate last week.

The private school will temporarily close until further notice to allow for cleaning and for contact tracing to get underway.

"We are working to determine where the virus may have been acquired, including working with the woman to gather necessary information about places she may have visited whilst infectious," says Queensland Health.

"As always, we strongly recommend everyone with symptoms to immediately get tested. Vigilance is key to keeping community transmission out of Queensland."

There have been 1,076 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Queensland since the beginning of the pandemic.
