Visitors from Queensland will now be tested for COVID-19 and undergo 14 days of quarantine as the Brisbane cluster grew overnight to seven cases.

That followed one new case of the virus being recorded on Friday.

New restrictions, such as health screenings and temperature checks at Perth Airport, have now been imposed.

"Being careful and cautious has served WA so well and kept us safe from COVID-19," Health Minister Roger Cook said.

"The situation continues to evolve as Queensland Health continues their contract tracing and it's more important than ever that people familiarise themselves with the specific locations listed by the QLD Government, they are getting updated regularly and if people fit this category, they must go get tested and remain in self-quarantine for 14 days.

"Be COVID safe and if any symptoms present, people should go get tested immediately.

"It's important we all heed the health advice to keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe."
