Fear Sydney’s coronavirus cluster has spread to Queensland after 18 people visited Crossroads Hotel before crossing the border
Eighteen people in Queensland have been instructed to isolate themselves after visiting a Sydney site that is the center of a coronavirus outbreak.
At least 21 COVID-19 cases have already been linked to the Crossroads Hotel in Casula in southwest Sydney.
All customers who have visited the hotel between July 3 and July 10 are urged to be tested.
Since the cluster was announced, 18 people currently in Queensland have volunteered for testing.
They are all waiting for their quarantined results.

Queensland has banned travelers from local government areas of Campbelltown and Liverpool – including Casula – to stop the spread of COVID-19
Authorities believe that this number will continue to rise in the coming days.
On Tuesday, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced that the local government areas of New South Wales, Liverpool and Campbelltown would be considered COVID-19 hotspots from noon.
Anyone from those areas, or who has traveled within the regions, is not allowed to enter Queensland.
“Travelers who have been in a COVID-19 hotspot for the past 14 days cannot be quarantined in Queensland and are being rejected at our borders,” she said.
Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk, Queensland, has announced that her state has declared suburbs within the two local government COVID-19 hotspots. Mrs. Palaszczuk imagined she addressed the media on Monday
“Queenslanders who have been in a COVID-19 hotspot for the past 14 days must be quarantined at their own expense.”
Borders remain closed to all Victorians, where the entire state has been identified as a potential hotspot as it struggles with a devastating second outbreak.
Ms. Palaszczuk is under increasing pressure from Queenslanders – especially online – to reassess the state’s position on borders and consider banning someone from New South Wales, too.
On Tuesday, there were zero new confirmed cases of the deadly respiratory virus in Queensland and four active infections.
More to come.
