Queensland Deputy Chief health Officer Dr Sonya Bennett said as a result of WA's confirmed cases a new Interstate Exposure Venues Direction would apply to Queenslanders who had visited any of the locations.

"If you are entering Queensland and have been to any of the WA exposure sites at the time specified, you will need to quarantine for 14 days in government-arranged accommodation," Dr Bennett said in a statement.

"If you have been to any of these sites and are already in Queensland, you must call (13 43 25 84) to discuss your circumstances.

"You must immediately travel by private transport directly to your home or accommodation and quarantine until you receive further instructions from Queensland Health."

Queensland's COVID-19 total remains at 1,564, with no new cases in the past 24 hours.
