Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced there were no new local coronavirus cases detected.

"Can I please say to Queensland, we're not out of the woods yet," Ms Palszczuk said.

"If you have any symptoms, mild, whatsoever, please go and get a test. That is absolutely critical. And go and get your vaccination when it is due."

The premier also said in response to the statewide lockdown in NSW, Queensland will introduce even tighter restrictions along the border.

She said there needs to be "very minimal movement over that border".

"We will do everything we can to keep Queenslanders safe," Ms Palaszczuk said.

Yesterday, there were six new cases reported, all of whom are linked to existing infections.

Among the new cases was a one-year-old child, with Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr James Smith adding that across the state's Indooroopilly cluster "a significant proportion" have been children.
