Ms Palaszczuk said next week is "really critical" in stamping out coronavirus from the state.

"They are in two households".

"Queenslanders are listening, we're doing the right thing and we are in a bit of uncharted waters at the moment but we've got through things worse than this before", she said.

"These two young women have been out in the community for eight days while unwell", she said.

Authorities are bracing for a south-side cluster as contact tracers continue to chart the paths of Muranga and Lasu through Logan and Brisbane while showing signs of the highly-infectious virus.

Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young says the nursing home has been doing a "fantastic" job since the staff member was first suspected of having COVID-19.

"It's more important - far, far more important to maintain that social distancing".

Mr Miles had previously said two alleged border jumpers had been caught by police.

"If you feel more comfortable managing your risks by cancelling things, then I commend you for it".

Ms Palaszczuk confirmed authorities were aware that three women had in fact travelled to Victoria and back together, not just the two 19-year-old girls.

At least 15 close contacts of the COVID cases will be kept in hotel quarantine and the infectious girls are at the PA Hospital.

Mr Miles assured locals "there's no need to panic", if they had visited a place that any of the confirmed cases had visited.

None had come back positive.

"If there is anyone else out there who has been infected, we want to find them".

A man in his 20s was diagnosed in hotel quarantine after recently returning from overseas.

"That disincentive was something we considered when we put those charges in place ..."

"I think it was reckless", she told reporters.

"I don't think you could be too cautious".

However Mr Miles said Queensland Health was not now concerned about public transport "at this stage".

Scores of others from both schools were also last night in home quarantine after being ruled as close contacts of the three positive cases.

Police said no further information was available at this time.

Chief Health Officer said the global traveller had returned from the United States and the couple had not been required to self-isolate, but did so anyway.

"We will just manage that resident even more cautiously and just check on them regularly to make sure they've not got any symptoms", she said.

"What we have seen in these instances are deliberate acts of deception", Queensland Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said.

"I don't know where that second case has been".

Further investigations revealed that she lied at the border about her objective for entering Queensland, police said.

It comes as "worried and frustrated" health officials are scrambling to trace the movements of two COVID-positive women who travelled around southeast Queensland for nearly a week after lying to authorities about their trip to Melbourne.

There are now no contact tracing alerts aside from the flight.

Queensland Health has issued a warning on July 29, asking community members on Brisbane's southside to remain alert as three new cases of COVID-19 were recorded.

The woman, who was confirmed as testing positive to the coronavirus yesterday, is believed to have contracted the infection after dining at a restaurant attended by three women who allegedly sneaked back into the state after partying in Victoria.
