Melbourne COVID-19 exposure sites include CBD restaurant, three Epping locations

Update: since this story was published Victorian authorities have clarified the Woolworths exposure site was in Epping North, rathern than Epping as previously reported.

Melbourne's first local case of COVID-19 in months visited one CBD restaurant and two stores in Epping while infectious, according to a list of exposure sites published by Victorian health authorities this afternoon.

A second test has confirmed the man in his 30s - who returned to Victoria from hotel quarantine in Adelaide on 4 May - does indeed have the virus, but tests for his three primary household contacts have all come back negative.

Officials have released four tier 1 exposure sites, and anyone who visited these locations at the times mentioned will need to get tested and quarantine for 14 days from the exposure:

  • Pact Retail Accessories (until recently called TIC Group) front office in Altona North on 6 May, 12:01am-11:59pm
  • Indiagate Spices and Groceries, Epping on 6 May, 5-6pm
  • Curry Vault Indian Restaurant & Bar in the CBD on 7 May, 6:30-9:30pm
  • Woolworths Epping North on 8 May, 5:40-6:38pm

The following venues have been listed as tier 2, meaning anyone who visited at the indicated time will need to get tested urgently and isolate until they receive a negative result.

  • Pact Retail Accessories (until recently called TIC Group) warehouse section in Altona North on 6 May, 12:01am-11:59pm
  • 7-Eleven Epping on 6 May, 6:30-7pm
  • 7-Eleven Epping on 8 May, 11:10-11:40am
