Click here to view the contact tracing (exposure sites) for COVID-19 (in Queensland) and the relevant Queensland Health directives for those impacted. Queensland Health has determined that a previously identified COVID case at BGS was infectious during the entire school week beginning Monday 26 July. Anyone who visited BGS from Monday 26 July to Friday 30 July must quarantine.

Immediately below is the most up to date directives from Queensland Health for those who attended exposure sites. Note the latest BGS communications are listed further down this page.

  1. Immediately travel by private transport directly to your home or accommodation and quarantine until 11.59pm on Friday 13 August.
  2. Get tested at your earliest opportunity, and again on day 12 of the quarantine period (Wednesday 11 August).
  3. Complete the contact tracing form online. If you are unable to complete the contact tracing form please call 134 COVID (134 268).
  4. Continue to quarantine even after receiving a negative result. After you complete the contact tracing form you will be contacted by Queensland Health.
  5. Continue to monitor for symptoms, if you become symptomatic get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result.
  6. As you are a close contact, you are required to quarantine for 14 days from the time you were at the venue/s.
