Ms Berejiklian said some venues had been “hopeless” in using QR codes and told people not to visit venues that were slacking off on COVID tracing.

“I don’t want to understate how serious the current outbreak is,” she said.

“We do have the potential to get on top of it however it requires hard work from all of us.”

The Prime Minister urged for calm in the wake of the cluster.

“There’ll be some constraints as a result of the events in the last 24 hours,” Mr Morrison said.

“But as we’ve often seen with those events, those limitations can further be eased once further information is known, and that will be a matter for the premiers.“

Queensland hasn’t yet announced any restrictions against greater NSW, with only visitors from the northern bleachers forced to isolate on arrival.
