Brisbane Hotel Shut Over UK Strain Link as States Issue Urgent Quarantine Advice

An outbreak of the highly contagious UK variant of COVID-19 in a Queensland quarantine hotel has grown to six cases, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has said.

Victorian and NSW health authorities have released urgent advice for returned travellers or staff members who attended a quarantine hotel in Brisbane linked to the UK COVID-19 variant.

Late on Wednesday, Victoria’s health department implored anyone in the state who quarantined or worked at the Grand Chancellor hotel on or after 30 December to isolate and contact the coronavirus hotline immediately.

NSW health authorities released a similar alert, asking anyone who has been at the hotel since 30 December, either as a returned traveller or as a staff member, to get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days after they were last there – regardless of their test result.

Those people should also get in touch with NSW Health by phone for further advice.
