A new positive COVID-19 case was identified in Latrobe City today.
It is the third case recorded across the weekend and lifts the total active cases across the Gippsland region to 10.
Two new Tier 2 exposure sites are associated with this case.

The Gippsland Region Public Health Unit (GRPHU) said only people who visited a Tier 2 Exposure Site only during the specified times are to get tested and stay home until they receive a negative result.
“Tier 2 premises have either had confirmed cases visit during their infectious period or are sites where a confirmed case may have acquired their infection,” A GRPHU spokesperson said.
“This does not mean there is an ongoing risk associated with the premises. You can safely visit the site in line with current restrictions.”
There are a number of testing sites available on Monday.
