COVID-19 Latest: Queensland records three new local cases, masks to stay for another week
Queensland has recorded three new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 overnight.
One is a 12-year-old boy who tested positive after spending two weeks in hotel quarantine in Sydney and then flew into Brisbane on QF544 on July 9.
The parent of the boy also tested positive, along with a fully vaccinated airport worker.
It brings the states total to 50 active cases.
