Queensland will soon be swamped by hundreds more international arrivals and Canberrans on holiday.

Police are now working through new checks at the state's airports to keep coronavirus at bay.

"Citizens will have to sign declarations to say that they haven't been in NSW in the last two weeks," Queensland Police Minister Mark Ryan said.

"We do have sufficient resources to do those checks."

This includes following up on anyone who skips out on paying quarantine hotel bills.

"They have 30 days to pay the bill," Mr Ryan said.

"And if they don't pay the bill they can expect follow up action."

For the first time in two decades Qantas will have four flights a week between Canberra and the Gold Coast.

Queensland recorded no new COVID-19 cases today and authorities across the state plan to keep it that way.

"Do not falsely, you know, make statements on those declarations," Queensland Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll told reporters.

"We will take action against you."

Commissioner Carroll said police will continue to patrol to make sure social distancing rules are adhered to.

"We do use the (police) horses very proactively in engaging with the community so it probably is a possibility that we will have the horses out and about more often."
