Victoria recorded five new locally acquired COVID-19 cases yesterday.

Two of the cases, both male residents at the Kings Park Apartments in Southbank, were revealed during yesterday’s COVID-19 press conference.

Of the other three cases today, two are household primary close contacts of a previously announced resident in the Southbank apartment complex.

The other new case is a fully vaccinated nurse who cared for COVID-positive Arcare residents at Epping Private Hospital.

She worked two shifts on June 9th and 14th, and is thought to have been infectious for the second shift.

COVID-19 testing commander Jeroen Weimar says authorities are “very concerned”.

The three other cases have all been linked to current known outbreaks.

More than 40 new exposure sites were added to the list last night.
