Melbourne Airport café named latest COVID-19 exposure site

Melbourne Airport's Brunetti café is the latest COVID-19 exposure site named by Victoria's Department of Health as the state records five new locally acquired cases of the coronavirus.

Health authorities added the location overnight, and anyone who visited the Brunetti café between 4.45am and 1.15pm on Tuesday 9 February must isolate for two weeks and get tested.

It comes as Victoria reports five new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 today, bringing the total number of active cases in the state to 19.

The new cases are all linked to the Holiday Inn outbreak, meaning there are still no cases unlinked to any active outbreaks in the state.

VIC Premier Daniel Andrews is expected to front the press today in response to the growing COVID-19 cluster.

As reported by the Herald Sun, a snap lockdown of Melbourne to come into effect as early as tonight is on the table, though a final decision on new restrictions has not yet been reached.

So far, South Australia has implemented a hard border to all travellers from Greater Melbourne in response to the outbreak.

Queensland has banned entry to all travellers if they have been to any of Melbourne's exposure sites, while Western Australia has extended its hard border to VIC for an extra week.

New South Wales currently remains open to all Victorians, but incoming passengers are being screened on arrival.
