Mr Dutton released a statement this afternoon announcing he had testing positive for the illness.
“This morning I woke up with a temperature and sore throat,” he said in a statement.
“I immediately contacted the Queensland Department of Health and was subsequently tested for COVID-19.
“I was advised by Queensland Health this afternoon that the test had returned positive.
“It is the policy of Queensland Health that anyone who tests positive is to be admitted into hospital and I have complied with their advice.”
Mr Dutton said he feels “fine” and will provide an update soon.
More to come.
