Queensland has recorded four new cases of coronavirus as a cluster linked to Queensland Corrective Services Academy grows.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the new cases were known contacts of positive cases linked to the cluster.

It brings the total of active cases in the state to 28 and the total number of positive cases in the Sunshine State to 1121 since the pandemic began.

Ms Palaszczuk said they had tested more than 10,500 people in 24 hours.

“Remember it’s absolutely critical if you have any symptoms please go and get tested,” she said.

Three of the new cases live together with two other positive cases, she said.

The Premier said the new cases were located in the suburbs of Forest Lake and Collingwood Park.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said there were now more than 100 places on the state’s list of places visited by confirmed cases.

She said that would likely have increased due to the fresh cases diagnosed over the weekend.

New additions to the contract-tracing list include:

August 26: Coomera Westfield 9:30am 10:25am, Woolworths Pimpama Junction 10:40am-10:50am, Kmart Oxenford 11:00am-11:10am, Bunnings Oxenford 11:20am-11:50am, Woolworths Pimpama Junction 12:00pm-12:15pm, Zazar’s Kebabs Pimpama 12:15pm-12:25pm, Logan Motorway BP Service Centre and McDonald’s Larapinta 5:45pm-5:50pm, Gold Coast University Hospital Fever Clinic, Southport 7:00pm-7:20pm, Pub Lane Tavern, Greenbank Shopping Centre 7:30pm-9:30pm
