Queensland COVID exposure sites: Kenilworth, Noosa, Eumundi and Sunshine Beach venues put on alert
Queensland Health has listed seven new COVID-19 exposure sites after a previously confirmed case had their infectious period “revised”.
The locations – which span across the Sunshine Coast in Kenilworth, Noosa, Eumundi and Sunshine Beach – were listed on the government’s website on Tuesday evening.

Queensland recorded three new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday – one in hotel quarantine and two in home quarantine.
“So when we ask people, when they are a close contact to go in home quarantine, people are doing the right thing and they are being found,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told reporters.
“So that’s keeping Queenslanders safe. I’m really happy about that.”
Queenslanders are preparing for an easing of local restrictions that were introduced last month before simultaneous COVID-19 clusters emerged.
From 6am on Friday, masks will no longer be mandatory in the general community but will still have to be worn at airports and on planes.
Cafes and restaurants will be able to take in more patrons, dancing at nightclubs will return, and there’ll be no restrictions on vaccinated people visiting hospitals, aged-care homes or residential disability care providers.
