Greater Shepparton COVID-19 cases continue to climb

FOLLOWING a reallocation of the one active case added to its tally last week - the first in over two months - Moira Shire has returned to a status of zero active COVID-19 cases; Greater Shepparton’s tally continues to rise steadily however.

As of yesterday afternoon, Greater Shepparton was listed as having 12 active cases - an increase of 11 in less than a week, with cases rising by three cas- es yesterday.

Five of the active cases are related to the Shep- parton Villages outbreak; being two staff members, two close contacts of the staff members who are not employed at Shepparton Villages, and one resident

at Maculata Place. A student from Greater Sheppar- ton College (Wanganui Campus) is also linked to this outbreak.

There are two active cases that are linked, and two other single separate active cases that are not linked. All of these people are required to isolate, are being monitored and are being provided sup- port where required.

GV Health is undertaking contact tracing in re- lation to all current active cases in Shepparton in consultation with the Department of Health and Human Services.
