Coronavirus updates LIVE: Staff worked in quarantine hotel while infectious, Queensland border to stay shut until November

Queensland wants New South Wales to record 28 days of zero community transmission cases, where authorities are unable to link the new case to a known source, before it will consider reopening the border dividing the states.

The clock has just been reset, after a case understood to be eight weeks old was detected in a western Sydney man on Thursday. That means it is unlikely the Queensland border will reopen before November.

As Lydia Lynch and Toby Crockford report, community transmission figures for NSW remained largely stable in the two months before Queensland announced on June 30 it would reopen its borders on July 10.

The last time Queensland opened its borders to all of NSW was on July 10, after making the announcement on June 30.
