New Victorian exposure sites revealed as SA locks Melburnians out

New Victorian exposure sites revealed as SA locks Melburnians out

Victoria's Department of Health has announced new exposure sites in the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Glen Waverley after two new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 were discovered.

It comes as South Australia imposed a hard border to all travellers from Greater Melbourne overnight in response to an outbreak connected to the now-closed Holiday Inn quarantine facility.

The two new locally acquired COVID-19 cases are both linked to the Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn outbreak, bringing the total number of cases reported in VIC to 20,458.

As such, the VIC Department of Health has updated its list of exposure sites to include:

  • Commonwealth Bank, Glen Waverley Tuesday 9 February, 1.30pm-2.45pm
  • HSBC Bank, Glen Waverley Tuesday 9 February, 2.15pm-3.30pm

South Australian health officials imposed a hard border to travellers from Greater Melbourne at midnight, after new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 were detected in the Victorian capital.

However, those who made it in before the deadline and test negative will then be allowed to leave isolation.

Travellers from regional Victoria will not be impacted by this change to the border restrictions.
