Melburnians Who Visited These 14 Locations Must Get Tested and Self Isolate for 14 Days
The sites were visited by a positive COVID-19 case who was identified last night.
Victoria had managed to clock up 28 days without any new locally acquired COVID-19 cases before yesterday's announcement that a hotel quarantine worker at the Grand Hyatt Hotel has tested positive to the virus. As a result, the government has brought in new statewide restrictions around mask-wearing and household gatherings, starting from 11.59pm last night, Wednesday, February 3.
Public health teams are now working quickly to control any potential spread, with the Department of Health and Human Services identifying a list of 14 possible exposure sites as part of its contact-tracing efforts.
