Media release
28 November 2020

Victoria has recorded no new cases of coronavirus since yesterday and there are no cases currently active. The total confirmed cases in Victoria remains at 20,345. 

This is the 29th straight day where Victoria has recorded zero daily cases.   

A total of 3,563,335 test results have been received in Victoria which is an increase of 9403 since yesterday.

Following the detection of coronavirus fragments in wastewater at the Northern Water Reclamation Plant in Corio this week, residents and visitors to Geelong’s northern suburbs and Lara from Saturday 21 to Tuesday 23 November are urged to get tested if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how mild.

Obtaining test results from these areas is vital to our surveillance of Victoria’s COVID-19 situation. The more people who present for testing, the more confident we can be in our current virus-free status.

Should a positive case be detected from this testing, health authorities are well placed to quickly respond to contain any further spread of COVID-19 in Victoria.

The Victorian Government is continuing to monitor the situation in South Australia and will continue to 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
