"No residents at Fairview, Pinjarra Hills are now symptomatic".

Queensland Health is now consulting "go card" records and CCTV to identify whether the women used public transport services to travel.

"We have rostered additional employees and have provided extra mobile phones and iPads to site to ensure residents remain connected with their families".

A third woman is under police investigation after returning to Queensland from Victoria and failing to declare her whereabouts.

On Friday, Tasmania also announced it would ban travellers from Queensland who visited premises linked to coronavirus cases. They will now be ordered to quarantine.

"They've appeared to have lied to get around that and I don't' think the charges are necessarily the reason for that".

Mr Miles said more than 11,000 people were tested across the state yesterday.

Police said no further information was available at this time.

However, Queensland Health has advised that any individuals who have been in the below locations during the relevant times should monitor their health and immediately present for testing if they are experiencing any relevant symptoms.

"Unfortunately the second confirmed case has not wanted to let us know where she has been", she said.
