Family of four tests positive to COVID-19 after visiting coastal hamlet

coronavirus latest

A family of four who holidayed at Port Fairy last week has tested positive to COVID-19.

Moyne Shire Council confirmed the news on Tuesday.

“The family did the right thing, cutting their holiday short after being told a close family member in Melbourne had a confirmed case of the virus,” the council said in a statement.

“They immediately returned to their home, which is not a hot spot suburb, and got tested.”

The council said it was providing assistance to a local accommodation business as a result.

The Mayor of Moyne Shire Council, Daniel Meade, said the advice he’d been given was that there was a low chance of community transmission.

“It’s certainly created some concern in the local area,” he said.
