Victoria has recorded no new cases of coronavirus since yesterday and there are no cases currently active. 

This is the 34th straight day where Victoria has recorded zero daily cases. There were no new deaths and the state’s death toll stands at 820.

A total of 3,603,415 test results have been received in Victoria which is an increase of 10,094 since yesterday.

Traces of COVID-19 have been detected in a wastewater sample from the Daylesford, Hepburn and Hepburn Springs area. The Department is investigating further.

The viral fragments of coronavirus were detected from a sample taken on Monday and further samples will be taken today for testing.

People who have or have recently had COVID-19 may shed fragments of the virus and these can enter wastewater through toilets, sinks and drains.

As always, anyone with symptoms in the Daylesford, Hepburn and Hepburn Springs area – or anyone with symptoms who visited the region on the weekend – should get tested. Testing is available at Daylesford Health from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

The Victorian Government is continuing to monitor the situation in South Australia and will be guided by the health advice.

A permit is required to enter Victoria from South Australia unless an exemption applies. Permits are available from the Service Victoria website.

Information regarding COVID-19 is available at the Department of Health and Human Services website or by calling 1800 675 398.

Testing site details, including opening hours, are available at Where to get tested.

More information about travel to and from South Australia is available on the DHHS website.
