Australia coronavirus live update: four new Covid cases in Victoria and one in Queensland; wild weather hits eastern states

Because I believe this risk is actually a little bit lower, I haven’t asked all of our vulnerable facilities to go into lockdown at this stage.

So you would know and be aware that usually when we have an outbreak I require hospital, aged care facilities, disability care accommodation facilities and prisons, if there are any in that locality, to go into lockdown.

I don’t believe the risk is such that we need to do that for this particular outbreak at this stage, but of course, anyone who’s been to any of the venues or, indeed, anyone who’s unwell shouldn’t visit any of those facilities for 14 days since they were at that venue at the time that one of these two individuals from Melbourne attended those venues.
