LOCATIONS in Aspendale Gardens, Mordialloc, and Chelsea Heights have been listed as tier one COVID-19 exposure sites.
The Department of Health has listed multiple local sites in its list of COVID-19 exposure settings. Visitors to “tier one” locations have been instructed to get tested and isolate for 14 days.
A positive COVID-19 case dined at the Chelsea Heights Hotel on 23 May from 12:10pm until 1:30pm, forcing other guests into two weeks of isolation. Other tier one exposure sites are the Sporting Globe on Main Street, Mordialloc between 6.17pm and 9.43pm on 23 May, and Subway Chelsea Heights on Piper Drive between 11.30am and 12.15pm on 25 May. A positive COVID-19 case attended both those venues as well.
Last week, Victorian COVID-19 testing commander Jeroen Weimar said that the Mordialloc Sporting Globe was of particular concern to contact tracers.
“We have an individual who was at the Sporting Globe in Mordialloc between 6:15pm and 9:45pm on Sunday 23 May, we believe they caught the infection then,” he said. “So we now see the significant risk in particular at those social venues, the bars and clubs.”
As of 31 May there are three active COVID-19 cases among residents from the Kingston local government area.
Other tier two sites have been listed in Parkdale, Chadstone, and Cranbourne.
A one week “circuit breaker” lockdown was announced on 27 May in response to a growing number of COVID-19 cases in Victoria. The five kilometer travel limit has been reintroduced. People can only leave home for work, school, caregiving, shopping, and to get vaccinated.
In response to growing case numbers, the state government has opened up vaccinations to people in the 40-49 age bracket.
There are 67 active COVID-19 cases in Victoria as of 2 June, with a lockdown extension not yet ruled out.
