Residents urged to get tested amid Springfield virus fears
RESIDENTS across Springfield Lakes have been urged to get tested if they are showing any coronavirus symptoms after two confirmed cases visited a number of public places in the region.
Two 19-year-old women, one from Logan and one from Acacia Ridge, recently travelled together to Melbourne, returning to Queensland via Sydney on July 21.
"These young women have gone about their business within the communities that they live in so there will be a large amount of contact tracing to be done, largely within the Logan and Springfield areas, including shopping malls, restaurants and a church," Queensland Health Minister Steven Miles said.
Residents displaying any symptoms have been urged to immediately visit a local fever clinic for testing.
Contact tracing is now underway, impacting a number of local businesses and residents.
The Queensland Times is working to identify the full list of places the two women visited.
