Queensland has recorded no new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours with three cases currently active.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, commenting on speculation the Queensland border could be closed to all Sydney residents, said the government was still monitoring the situation in NSW.

"I will be getting further updates today," she said.

"If we have to declare further hot spots, we will declare further hot spots."

The Premier said if there were further outbreaks, the government wouldn't hesitate to take swift action.
