THERE were no new coronavirus cases recorded on the Sunshine Coast in the past 24 hours, with the region's total number remaining at 94.

Of these, three cases are active in the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service district, which includes Noosa and Gympie.

Queensland recorded five new cases in the last 24 hours bringing the total to 1043, including 57 active cases.

Queensland Health advised the Sunshine Coast's latest confirmed case was a patient who had returned from overseas and completed two weeks' isolation before they showed symptoms.

Sunshine Coast police commended residents for generally complying with the eased Covid-19 restrictions over the Labour Day long weekend, but advised they issued four fines.

"The Sunshine Coast hinterland was identified as a focus for police due to large crowds attending areas of Gardners Falls and Mary Cairncross Park," Senior Constable Rebecca McMeniman said.

"There was also a notable increase of recreational motorcycle riders in the hinterland area.

"While most people did the right thing, police issued four infringement notices with people failing to comply with the Chief Health Officer's direction.

"These alleged breaches occurred in the Sunshine Coast hinterland."

Police patrolled all beaches regularly and did not identify any major issues.

To date, 980 people who tested positive in Queensland have recovered from the virus and six people have died.

A total of 117,721 tests have been conducted in Queensland.
