Victoria Covid-19 new exposure sites: Bunnings, Coles added to updated list

Despite good news that Melbourne’s lockdown will end tonight, health authorities have added dozens of new alerts to Victoria’s list of Covid-19 exposure sites.

A Bunnings warehouse, Coles supermarket and an aged care facility are among 29 new alerts added to Victoria’s list of Covid-19 exposure sites.

The health department issued the tier 1 and tier 2 health alerts on Wednesday night following one new local case of coronavirus – that case was linked to a previously known outbreak and was already quarantining.

It also followed an announcement that greater Melbourne’s two-week lockdown would end at 11.59pm on Thursday, with health authorities confident they had the latest coronavirus outbreak under control.

Anyone who visited Marco Fine Food and Groceries in Reservoir on June 8 between 12pm and 12.30pm must urgently get tested and quarantine for 14 days.

More than a dozen tier 1 alerts were also issued for the Arcare Maidstone aged care facility – see the scrolling list of updated Covid-19 exposure sites for details.

  • THOMASTOWN: Bunnings; June 8 between 6pm-6.30pm; Tier 2
  • BUNDOORA: Coles Bundoora Square; June 7 between 12pm-1pm; Tier 2
