Travellers from greater Sydney are barred from entering Queensland.

The Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellharbour will also be declared hotspots.

Greater Sydney has been declared a COVID-19 hotspot, after 16 new local cases were recorded yesterday.

Anyone returning home to Queensland who has been in these areas will have to enter hotel quarantine.

Queenslanders have also been advised not to travel to Greater Sydney and surrounding regions at this time.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said the sharp rise of cases in Sydney today is extremely concerning, especially given they were “fleeting contact”.

“The Delta variant is much more contagious than other variants and we do not want it circulating in Queensland.”

Earlier, it was announced the following local government areas will be barred from entry to Queensland, the City of Sydney, Woollahra, Bayside, Canada Bay, Inner West and Randwick.
