A Gold Coast aged care home will have its staff quickly vaccinated after a tradie worked on site before returning a positive COVID test.
One of the five confirmed cases in Brisbane's second cluster announced on Tuesday is a Gold Coast man who attended a hen's party in Byron Bay over the weekend.
The tradie - who also works as an entertainer, was part of the party where a nurse and her sister both were infectious with COVID-19.
Queensland's chief health officer Dr Jeanette Young says the man lives on the Gold Coast, and worked at the TriCare Mermaid Beach aged care facility on Monday.
"There are a further five cases that I've been informed of overnight linked to that nurse or her sister. They're all linked cases, and they all attended a party together down in Byron Bay," she said.
"One of the positive cases in that second cluster attended the hens party as an entertainer, and he came back and he lives in the Gold Coast and he works as a tradie, and he did go to an aged care facility on the Gold Coast.
"Every resident in that aged care facility has already been vaccinated, had their first dose. I haven't got confirmation about whether any have received their second dose," she said.
"The team down at the Gold Coast are organising to go to the facility today and vaccinate the staff of that facility."
A letter provided to families on Monday by TriCare stated the man did not come into contact with any residents at the aged care home while he was on site for two hours.
"The contractor left the site immediately after he was notified of being a close contact to a confirmed case," the letter reads.
