A McDonald’s and a childcare centre in Brisbane’s north have been listed as exposure sites after Queensland issued an alert for a new Covid-19 infection in the community.

Parents from the Mother Duck Childcare and Kindergarten in Eatons Hill have been urged to get tested after the facility was listed as a casual contact venue, while a McDonald’s drive through in Albany Creek was listed as low risk.

Health authorities were most concerned about a retail store in Rocklea, Seat ‘R’ Us, which was listed as close contact venue.

Anyone who visited the shop on Friday between 11.15am and 11.45am is ordered to get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days regardless of a test result.

Health authorities are scrambling to trace the new infection who was revealed on Monday night as a man in his 30s who works in the aviation industry.

But, despite his profession, had not travelled interstate or overseas recently, creating a mystery for contact tracers.

“We urge all Queenslanders to check the contact tracing website and follow the health advice if you’ve been to any of these locations,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk posted to Facebook on Monday night.

Close contact:

Seats ‘R’ Us, 1/1620 Ipswich Rd, Rocklea, Friday, September 24, 11.15am – 11.45am

Casual contact:

Mother Duck Childcare and Kindergarten, Eatons Hill, 6-12 Bunya Park Dr, Thursday September 23, 7.25am – 8am
