Queensland's Parklands Christian College closed after positive coronavirus case

Case of COVID-19 shuts down South-East Queensland school

A private college south of Brisbane has closed after a female employee within the school community tested positive for COVID-19.

Parklands Christian College has been temporarily closed to undergo cleaning after Queensland Health confirmed a woman tested positive late yesterday after last week returning from interstate.

The school in the Logan suburb of Park Ridge confirmed on its website that it would be closed on Wednesday, but did not provide any further details.

Queensland Health said the woman was in isolation and contact tracing was underway.

"The school will temporarily close until further notification to allow for cleaning and work will commence on contact tracing," it said.

"Queensland Health is working to determine where the virus may have been acquired, including working with the woman to gather necessary information about places she may have visited whilst infectious."

Queensland's total number of coronavirus cases now stands at 1,077, with six active cases remaining.

"As always, we strongly recommend everyone with symptoms to immediately get tested," QH said.

"Vigilance is key to keeping community transmission out of Queensland."
