New COVID alerts list QLD ALDI, Coles and Woolies plus several Byron Bay locations

A number of new COVID alerts have been listed after venues were believed to have been exposed to the virus following Queensland’s latest cluster.

On the list of venues are major shopping chains including Woolworths, Coles, Aldi, Bunnings, Liquorland, IGA and Cold Rock Ice Creamery.

The Greater Brisbane area has been ordered into a snap three-day lockdown in an attempt to stop the growing coronavirus cluster of seven cases.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says that the infected people have been out in the community and travelled to central Queensland and northern NSW.

Brisbane, Logan, Moreton Bay, Ipswich and Redlands are all in lockdown until Thursday evening.

People will only be allowed to leave home to simply do essential work, shop, care for people or exercise.

"I didn't sleep last night so I think I am very worried, I'm very concerned," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"But we've done it before, we've got through this together, and I'm sure that if everyone does the right thing we will be able to get through it.”

Ms Palaszczuk said the lockdown would be reviewed on Thursday, just in time for the Easter lockdown weekend.

Thousands of travellers flocked to the airport in an attempt to leave the city before the lockdown came into effect on Monday – leaving bustling crowds in the airport that caused a gridlock on roads surrounding the area.

Victoria has declared Greater Brisbane a "red zone" from 6 pm AEDT under its updated travel permit system.

All Queenslanders will be locked out of Western Australia from midnight, unless they have an exemption.

South Australia imposed a hard border on Monday afternoon, and has banned entry from Greater Brisbane.

They are also requiring testing and isolating from those who had arrived since March 20.

Restrictions have also been imposed in the ACT, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

NSW health has listed several venues as COVID alerts in Byron Bay on the far north coast, after it was revealed two positive cases travelled in the area from Friday, March 26 and Sunday, March 28.

Those who have visited Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park communal toilets on March 26, from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm and 9:10 pm to 9:30 pm and on Saturday, March 27 from 3:20 pm to 3:50 pm have been strongly urged to immediately get tested and self-isolate.
