At noon today there were around 210 published exposure sites in Victoria.

For more information on each exposure site, including the date and time of exposure, see Fall Warnings – Public Exposure Sites.

There may be times when the ministry cannot contact a commercial or residential building before it is listed as an exposure site. In the interest of public health, we decide at any time when these pages are published.

The department regularly maintains exposure sites that it does not publish online, especially if those sites present lower risk exposure or if they have extensive record keeping and contact tracing measures in place, or if they identify small, private locations – including smaller apartments or townhouses.

The Commonwealth Government publishes a Common Operating Picture weekly that contains the effective reproduction number for all states and territories. Further information can be found in the general operating picture of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
