Another hotel quarantine worker in Melbourne has tested positive to COVID-19.She works at the the Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport.

She was tested at end of her shift on Thursday, February 4, and returned a negative result.

She returned to work on Sunday morning, as an authorised officer, and later developed symptoms.

She was tested and has subsequently returned a positive result.
