Queensland tightens restrictions

Contact tracers in Queensland have been working furiously to extinguish a cluster linked to the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre. Overnight, the state recorded just one new case, a close contact of a worker at the centre. 

But health authorities are still urging caution -- 55 locations across greater Brisbane have been listed as venues where infected people visited. And the state government tightened restrictions slightly over the weekend, by limiting private gatherings in the Brisbane area to 10 people. 

NSW, Victoria getting under control
