Around 11 Queensland police officers are now in self-isolation in hotels or at home.
The returned traveller, 41, was suffering from psychosis when he tried to escape from the Rydges Hotel Southbank.
He was taken back to the hotel and later tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.
‘The 11 officers, who came into contact with the 41-year-old-man in hotel quarantine in South Brisbane, were wearing personal protective equipment in accordance with infection control measures,’ a Queensland Police statement read.
‘The 11 officers remain in isolation and as of today, all have returned negative tests.’
‘The Queensland Police Service is conducting welfare checks on the members each day and has been able to make arrangements to ensure adequate staffing is in place while they are isolating.’
Fears of new coronavirus outbreak come days before Queensland reopens its borders to Sydneysiders on December 1.
