Ms Palaszczuk said she has requested more research on how opening up Queensland would impact young children as her government comes under pressure to commit to the Federal Government's plan as COVID-19 vaccination rates increase.

The state has also recorded one overseas acquired case, detected in hotel quarantine.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk confirmed the truck driver travelled to New South Wales.


Yesterday, exposure sites were issued for Brisbane and the regional town of Goondiwindi after another truck driver who passed through the state tested positive for coronavirus.

Authorities say that driver was infectious in Queensland for just one day, arriving in the state on August 25 and returning to NSW on August 26.

More to come.
