The Geelong area recorded one new Covid case on Wednesday, but with wastewater detection on the Surf Coast, authorities are urging symptomatic people to come forward for testing.
Health officials have called on some residents of the Surf Coast to be tested for Covid-19 after wastewater detection at Airlies Inlets and Fairhaven.
The Geelong region recorded one new incident announced on Wednesday. This is believed to be the contact information for the household in the existing case.
Anyone who attends the venue during those hours should be tested and quarantined until they receive confirmation of negative results.
Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said Wednesday before people on the Surf Coast, especially those in towns where wastewater was detected, or those who went to the exposure site for any symptoms, were to be examined. He said he should leave.
“We are always concerned about whether wastewater was detected or where it was exposed,” he said.
“We would like to find all the cases that could be there and try to identify if there are exposed sites, if they are recovered cases, or any other explanation. . “
It comes as Ballarat rushes into a seven-day blockade After two new cases and numerous wastewater detections in different suburbs.
However, Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said Geelong’s infection was primarily a “controlled case” and the majority were closely related, and the region is currently avoiding a return to the blockade.
“Where we manage the chain of communications, where we are confident that we control their outbreaks, those communities remain open,” Andrews said.
