Update: Outbreaks and cases
95 per cent of the Primary Close Contacts linked to the Sandringham cases have been cleared.
Further clearances of contacts relating to the Virgin Airlines flight crew case are now underway.
Four active Primary Close Contacts remain in Victoria linked with the Tanami Mine site.
The Department also manages exposure sites that it doesn't publish online, particularly if these sites represent lower-risk exposures, if they have comprehensive record-keeping and contact tracing measures, or if they identify small, private locations.
Exposure sites are regularly reviewed based on intelligence and evidence, following case interviews.
Yesterday, 15,875 vaccine doses were administered by Victoria's state-commissioned services.
The total number of doses administered through these services is 1,222,819.
Some vaccination centres will reduce their operating hours and staffing levels as the supply of vaccines dip.
Most centres will maintain their current hours and resourcing and importantly, no existing appointments will be affected. When there are changes, these are reflected online so that people making bookings online can see the range of times and locations available to them.
More than 30,000 Pfizer second dose appointments are available online now for the next three-week period.
COVID-19 symptoms include fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath and loss or change in sense of smell or taste. If you are experiencing symptoms, wear a fitted face mask when you get tested.
