Queensland Health has identified 17 close contacts of the couple, but so far only has results for three of them.

They've been negative, including the infected woman's parents, with whom the couple stayed at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.

In total about 400 people have been forced into isolation and are getting tested as a result of the couple's arrival on Saturday after a road trip from Melton in Melbourne, through NSW and into Queensland.

They are known to have visited sites in Goondiwindi, Toowoomba and the southern Sunshine Coast.

A temporary, walk-in vaccination hub at the Caloundra Indoor Stadium will open its doors this weekend in response to the threat. It'll be open seven days a week until June 23.
