CHO health alerts

A Health Alert advises the Victorian community of an issue that is urgent, poses an immediate threat to public health and requires an immediate response.

Health Alerts are reviewed fortnightly, and information updates may also be issued for an alert or advisory where additional information becomes available.

An Alert with the status ‘Not active’ indicates the issue has been resolved.

CHO Alerts and Advisories more than one year old can be found in previous alerts
