Up to seven people who may have been exposed to a Hendra-infected horse will have to wait six weeks to find out if they are clear of the life-threatening virus.

The sick horse was put down after a vet visited a property at Tewantin, on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, on Monday.

Tests on Thursday confirmed the horse had Hendra virus.

Officers from Biosecurity Queensland and Queensland Health were on the unnamed quarantined property talking to the owners and any other people who may have had contact with the horse.
