The first case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in Charters Towers.
Traeger MP and KAP leader Robbie Katter said it was the first positive test of the disease in his electorate and the case was being managed by the Townsville Hospital and Health Service.
"I understand the affected person has recently returned from overseas, and has been in self-isolation since," Mr Katter said.
"I have no further information at this time."
There are still no cases in the North West Hospital and Health Service District, including Mount Isa.
