No active virus cases in Frankston


THERE are no active cases of coronavirus cases among Frankston residents, as of 31 May.

The last time a Frankston resident was recorded as having an active case of COVID-19 was on 25 May. Statistics from the Department of Health and Human Services have since been updated to show that there are no active cases among residents.

A total of 41 Frankston locals had previously tested positive for COVID-19.

There were also no active cases among people who live in the Kingston local government area. There is one active case on the Mornington Peninsula.

Victorian Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said “restrictions around some activities have now been eased in Victoria in recognition of the current low rate of community transmission of this virus.”

“While encouraging, we need to remain vigilant,” he said. “It is increasingly important that we stay at home when unwell and get tested, wash our hands regularly, sneeze and cough into our elbow and maintain physical distancing. These are common sense actions to ensure we don’t create a second wave of this serious disease, as we have seen in other countries once they have eased their stringent regulations.

“Victorians have done a remarkable job so far sticking to the coronavirus restrictions and staying at home has saved lives. But now is not the time for complacency.

“We are also asking Victorians to continue this amazing effort and get tested if they have symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, because the more tests we do, the more data we have about the prevalence of coronavirus in the community. People with even the mildest of symptoms of coronavirus including fever, chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose or loss of sense of smell are encouraged to get tested.”
