Twenty-seven of these cases are still active, and one person in the region has died.
The remaining 60 cases have recovered.
Queensland’s total number of COVID-19 cases sits at 983.
Most of these were contracted overseas, or through contact with someone who had returned from international travel.
The exact number of Gympie region cases remains unknown; Queensland Health only breaks the data down by health district, unlike the health services for New South Wales and Victoria which are listed by local government area or postcode.
