VICTORIA’S sixth COVID-19 lockdown is nearing its fourth week.
The vaccination hub at Bayside Shopping Centre in Frankston was named a tier two exposure site last week after a positive COVID-19 case went there. Anyone who visited the vaccination centre on 16 August between 11.30am and 12.45 pm must get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result.
A statement on Peninsula Health’s Facebook page said that the positive case had no symptoms while at the hub. “The Frankston Community Vaccination Hub remains open and is safe for you to visit if you have a booking for your COVID-19 vaccination. To make a booking, please call 1800 675 398 or you can book online through the Department of Health’s website,” the statement read.
Carrum Downs residents were also put on notice last week, after seven local exposure times were listed.
Oakwood Drive Reserve is a tier three exposure site during two different times – 1:30pm to 3:00pm on 12 August and 2pm to 3.30pm on 14 August. Anyone who was also there during those times should monitor for symptoms of coronavirus.
Another tier three exposure site has popped up at Wedge Road Oval. People should monitor for symptoms if they visited the oval between 2pm and 3.30pm on 11 August, 10am and 11.30am on 12 August, and 1pm and 2.30pm on 14 August.
Goodstart Early Learning Carrum Downs at 169 Hall Road is a tier two exposure site between 3pm and 3.40pm on 11 August, and 5.20pm to 6.10pm on 13 August. Anyone who was also there during that time must get tested immediately and isolate until their result comes back.
COVID-19 restrictions were tightened last week in a bid to quash the growing number of cases in Victoria. Additional restrictions were placed on the construction industry, with further staffing reductions put into place. Use of playgrounds, basketball hoops, skate parks, and outdoor exercise equipment has been banned, with exercise also now limited to just two people from a household. People can also not remove their masks to drink alcohol in public places.
