 Queensland Health is working to open up several new drive-through COVID testing clinics in Gladstone this morning, including one at Gladstone Palm Drive/Blain Drive Sporting complex.
 
It comes after a man travelled from Brisbane to Gladstone while infectious.
 
If you visited Spinnaker Park Cafe on Friday and Auckland House on Friday night or Saturday morning, you are considered a close contact and must isolate for 14 days and get tested. 
 
The infected man also visited the Gin Gin Bakery, Miriam Vale Roadhouse and Caravan Park, Coles and BWS at Stockland Gladstone on Thursday and Friday with people who visited these areas told to isolate until a negative test result has been returned. 
 
A full list of the exact times the infectious man visited the region is on the Queensland Health website here: https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/contact-tracing
