Victoria recorded five new local cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to midnight on Friday.

Four of the new cases have been linked to the Whittlesea outbreak and one has been linked to the outbreak at a Port Melbourne workplace.

A record 56,624 test results were received in the same period, and 21,626 vaccine doses were administered.

A COVID-positive person who worked while infectious at a food distribution business has led to a number of new tier one exposure sites.

More than 20 new exposure sites were listed overnight, bringing the number of identified exposure locations to more than 150.

COVID-19 testing commander Jeroen Weimar says 3000 primary close contacts of confirmed cases have been identified. Of those, 62 per cent have already returned negative test results.

There are currently 45 active cases of COVID-19 in Victoria, including 35 linked to the locally-transmitted Whittlesea/Port Melbourne outbreak.
