    Yes, the Sunshine Coast elders are abuzz about the incident and the couple from Melbourne (Melton area) had lunch with a witness that I knew some years ago.

    I'm sure the word will become official in due course. I was contacted by a witness I know in Caloundra about the incident.

    Queensland police have fined a Melbourne couple who tested positive to COVID-19 on the Sunshine Coast more than $4,000 each for allegedly lying on their border declaration passes.

    The couple allegedly travelled to Queensland via Goondiwindi on June 5 after having been in Victoria.

    Key points:

    • The Victorian couple allegedly lied on their border passes to enter Queensland while Melbourne was in lockdown
    • The Sydney local government area of Waverly has been declared a COVID hotspot
    • Healthworkers say changes to vaccine recommendations are "unsettling"

    The pair entered the state when the Victorian capital was in lockdown.

    Police allege the pair deliberately provided false information to obtain a Queensland border declaration pass.

    Authorities were later alerted to the pair after the woman, 44, tested positive to coronavirus on June 9, sparking a major contact tracing effort across south-east Queensland.

    The man, 48, also tested positive the following day.

    The pair were interviewed by police after being released from hospital, where they were undergoing treatment for COVID-19.

    They were each issued with a $4,003 fine for failing to comply with a COVID-19 border direction.
