Data on Victorian coronavirus cases are available under Victorian COVID-19 data.

There are currently more than 27,000 active primary close contacts in isolation in Victoria.

There were more than 610 published exposure sites in Victoria at noon today – but the most common exposure site in Victoria is the family home.

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.

Wastewater testing

COVID-19 virus fragments were detected in wastewater samples from the following regional areas:

  • Cobram – There have been repeated unexpected discoveries in Cobram in an area that includes Cobram. The interest period is the 20th-27th September.
  • Seymour – There have been repeated unexpected discoveries in an area that Seymour belongs to. The interest period is the 19th-27th September.
  • Ballarat – In an area that includes Lake Gardens, Mitchell Park, and Wendouree, there have been repeated unexpected discoveries. The interest period is the 15.-28. September.
  • Bendigo Area – Sewage was unexpectedly discovered in an area that includes East Bendigo, Wellsford, Strathdale, Kennington, Strathfieldsaye and Junortoun. The interest period is the 21.-23. September.

The discoveries could be one or more undiscovered new cases, or the result of one or more people in these areas who have recovered from COVID-19 but are still shedding the virus.

Anyone who lives, works, or has visited in the above areas are urged to be on the lookout for the mildest COVID-19 symptoms and get tested as soon as possible if symptoms develop.

Getting tested as soon as you have symptoms will help health officials identify new positive cases and provide adequate care for your family.

If you are concerned about losing money due to a lack of work, support is available – including paying $ 450 for test isolation. For more information, see Financial and Other Support for COVID-19.
