The centres are: Guardian Childcare and Education in Pascoe Vale; The Grove Children’s Centre in Coburg; Little Steps Family Day Care in Sunshine; Clare Court Children’s Service in Yarraville; and Kids on Queens Parade in Fitzroy North. 

This is the fourteenth consecutive day of double-digit case growth in Victoria, with a continuing and concerning number of new cases associated with transmission in households and families.  

The Victorian Government has launched a targeted blitz across 10 priority suburbs with a team of 800 testers to zero in on community transmission with a fleet of mobile vans. Over the coming week, residents of these suburbs will receive free testing – with or without symptoms.  

On the advice of the Chief Health Officer, priority suburbs include Keilor Downs, Broadmeadows, Maidstone, Albanvale, Sunshine West, Hallam, Brunswick West, Fawkner, Reservoir and Pakenham, with Keilor Downs and Broadmeadows identified as the current focus of testing. 

“It remains critical to practice good hygiene in and outside the home – wash your hands regularly, cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and try to avoid touching your face,” Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said. 

“Stay 1.5 metres away from anyone you don’t live with and avoid crowds, especially indoors. If you can keep working from home – you must keep working from home.  

“We have made some great progress in slowing the spread of coronavirus, but we are still seeing new cases in the community. 

“We have launched a targeted testing blitz across 10 priority suburbs and encourage locals in these areas – especially if you have symptoms – to come forward for testing and help us find and contain the virus. 

“Don’t take this disease lightly. if you feel unwell with any symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, you should stay home and get tested.  

“If you have any fever, chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, and loss of sense of smell or taste - stay home, don’t go in to work and don’t visit friends and family. Get tested and stay at home until you get the result.”
