Health Minister Steven Miles said Queensland Health would be contacting customers of Hair Plus who had appointments at the salon on Thursday, February 27, and may have been in close contact with the woman.

Queensland's chief medical officer Dr Jeannette Young said the woman had done everything perfectly.

"Because as soon as she had her first symptom, and she is a highly intelligent, very sensitive lady, she spoke to her manager and she went home and she went to Gold Coast University hospital to get tested", Young said.

"She saw a number of clients each for brief interactions, so we believe the risk is incredibly low", Dr Young said.

"If you went to Australia Fair but did not go to that particular hair salon on Thursday, there is no need for concern, but if you would like any advice please ring 13HEALTH".

Health Minister Steven Miles said extra fever clinics have been established to help manage demand for testing.
