Dr Young made the order as substantial contact tracing is undertaking to track down potentially hundreds of people that two 19-year-old girls who have tested positive to the highly-infectious virus have been in contact with since their return from Victoria on July 21.

The sporting body has yet to announce if they are seeking exemptions for the Sydney Swifts, Giants, West Coast Fever and Adelaide Thunderbirds or if they will attempt to move all four sides into Queensland before the weekend.

"The only challenge for NSW is limited freedom of movement for our residents", she said.

Fronting the media this morning, Palaszczuk said she was "absolutely furious" about the development.

V'landys said NRL players will be allowed to continue to travel between Queensland and NSW on private charter flights due to special exemptions granted by premier Palaszczuk.

Greater Sydney will be locked out of Queensland from 1am on Saturday, as the area is declared a COVID hot spot. However, while surprised by the decision given NSW is recording less than 20 cases each day, Ms Berejiklian said the closure would hurt the Sunshine State more than her own.

'It hurts the smaller states when they don't interact with NSW, it hurts us less if you talk about economy and that's a decision for her'.

"Our job is to protect Queenslanders and, given the situation in Sydney and in Victoria, we need to implement tough measures".

Dr Beirman said Queensland's response to "close the gates" to large parts of NSW because of a handful of cases is "overkill".

Professional sport in Australia including top-flight football has once again been plunged into chaos because of the reprecussions of Covid-19.

"I think it's one thing to "close the gates" to Victorians considering their daily case rates have spiked and now number in the hundreds".

"Of course, one case is not a chain [of transmission] and hopefully we'll be able to get that under control as soon as possible".

The Fever had been slated to play GIANTS on Saturday to start the Super Netball season, before facing the Swifts on August 9 in Sydney.
