Mask rules back in Victoria as exposure site list swells

Mask rules back in Victoria as exposure site list swells

UPDATE (12.30pm AEST 15 July): Two more COVID-19 cases have been detected in Victoria this morning - both uncovered following extensive testing of close contacts of the man who attended an AFL match at the MCG over the weekend.

Wearing a face mask is once again mandatory in Victoria as the state's list of exposure sites swells to more than 70 locations after 10 new COVID-19 cases were recorded yesterday, connected to two different chains of transmission - a family of four who had travelled back from Sydney and the removalist from the NSW capital.

The new rules, effective as of 12.01am today, mean wearing a mask will be mandatory in all indoor settings, including workplaces and secondary schools, and outdoors where social distancing is not possible.

VIC's list of exposure sites ballooned overnight and now include an AFL match at the MCG over the weekend, Campbellfield Plaza, a McDonalds in Craigieburn, multiple stores at the DFO in Uni Hill and many more.

The full list of public exposure sites can be found here.

Depending on the threat level, those who attended the sites may be required to self-isolate for 14 days and get tested for COVID-19.

One of the new cases is a teacher from Bacchus Marsh Grammar who attended a staff development day on Monday but was absent on Tuesday and Wednesday when students returned.
