Public health alerts issued after Victorian quarantine worker tests positive for COVID-19

A number of public health alerts in Sunbury, north of Melbourne, have been issued overnight after a Victorian hotel quarantine worker tested positive for COVID-19.

The worker from the Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport was one of two new COVID-19 cases uncovered in Victoria yesterday, with the other being a resident of the same facility who tested positive after completing the 14-day quarantine period.

While the resident poses no threat to the public as they did not leave their home post-release from quarantine, the Holiday Inn worker visited a number of places over the weekend.

As such, a list of exposure sites has been published by the Victorian Department of Health, and anyone who has been at any of these sites must immediately isolate, get tested, and remain isolated for 14 days.
