Gippsland Region Public Health Unit information:

A reminder that some Tier 2 venues may not be published on the Department of Health website. This means these sites represent lower risk exposures, or they have sufficient record keeping and contact tracing measures in place, or are not attended by members of the public.

People who visited a Tier 2 Exposure Site only during the specified times are to get tested and stay home until they receive a negative result.

Tier 2 premises have either had confirmed cases visit during their infectious period or are sites where a confirmed case may have acquired their infection. This does not mean there is an ongoing risk associated with the premises. You can safely visit the site in line with current restrictions.

South Gippsland and Baw Baw

One new positive case of COVID-19 has been identified in South Gippsland.

There is still only one existing positive case in Baw Baw, identified yesterday.

These cases present no risk to the community and no exposure sites are associated with these cases.

Both cases will be managed via the COVID Positive Pathway Process that includes regular contact and health monitoring.
