Queensland has recorded two new local cases of coronavirus overnight, including a three-year-old girl linked to the aviation cluster.

The other is a 19-year-old woman who flew from Victoria to Brisbane - given an exemption to return to Queensland.

No infections have been linked to yesterday's case, a woman in her 50s, who lives in Fitzgibbon.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk believes the two new cases are "not a concern", as both have been detected in quarantine.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young also says she is not "too concerned" about the infections, but is urging more people to come forward for testing.

Overnight, 8,690 people were tested for coronavirus across the state.

"I do need to see more testing to make sure," Dr Young says.

"It is really important ... any symptoms at all, please come and get tested."
