Queensland on lockdown watch after four-year-old tests positive to COVID-19

Queensland is on tenterhooks this morning after a new COVID-19 case was found in a four-year-old girl who came in contact with an infected truck driver.

The Queensland Government is set to provide a coronavirus update at 10am today and address whether a lockdown is needed to curb the spread of the virus.

9News understands the child is a close contact of the 46-year-old Logan truck driver who tested positive to coronavirus earlier this week.

The new local case was confirmed yesterday afternoon and forced a childcare centre in Logan to close.

The child attended The Boulevard Early Learning Centre at Mt Warren Park on Tuesday, August 31 and Wednesday, September 1.

There are concerns other children may be infected as the centre is also used as after-school care for students from Windaroo State School.

Anyone who attended the centre this week needs to come forward for testing and isolate with their household at home for 14 days.
