coronavirus,

Victoria has recorded 567 new coronavirus cases since Sunday. The new COVID-19 cases were all locally acquired with no new cases coming from overseas. Read more: Sunday also bought 50,915 test results to Victorians as well as 39,939 vaccinations being administered. Victoria’s active coronavirus case tally now sits at 5675. These case numbers come as a number of tier two exposure sites were added in Bendigo late Sunday afternoon. Kyneton also had five exposure sites listed. Seven tier two exposure sites have been identified, all for times and dates on September 16 and 17 in central Bendigo. The sites include the Bendigo Marketplace and four premises within the complex – Donut King, Big W, EB Games and Zing Pop Culture, as well as JB Hi-Fi and Toppers Cafe in the CDB. More news: Second positive COVID-19 case in Northern Grampians Two more sites have been identified in Woodend and another at Daylesford, and residents are urged to keep checking the state government’s updated list of exposure sites online and to take whatever action is needed. The new exposure sites were announced as Premier Daniel Andrews has outlined what it will take for the state to come out of lockdown with the announcement of the long-awaited roadmap yesterday. Melbourne’s controversial curfew will be scrapped, with people able to travel up to 25 kilometres and have a beer outside the pub once 70 per cent of Victorians aged over 16 are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. But the most substantial changes to the state’s restrictions won’t be made until 80 per cent of people are immunised, which is forecast to occur about November 5.
