The man and five other people dined at a table at Madtongsan IV adjacent to one of the three women with coronavirus who had been in Melbourne.
All of the people the man dined with are being tested for coronavirus.
Precautions are also being taken at an aged care centre in Pinjarra Hills after the new case of coronavirus in Queensland was linked to two employees of the facility.
But Queensland Health said on Friday night tests for coronavirus for the two employees at the aged care centre returned a negative result.
Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said of the three women who travelled to Melbourne, two had tested positive, while a third returned a negative result.
“But we’re just checking whether or not she’s actually had it [COVID-19] and recovered,” she said.
“It’s too early to say whether or not we’ll see on-going spread. We’ll know over the next week or two.
“We have a gentleman who tested positive overnight, he is our fourth case in this cluster.”
