Victoria has detected eight new locally acquired COVID-19 cases with one recorded on Tuesday and seven identified on Wednesday morning.
“We have, in the early hours of this morning … reported seven new positive cases from two separated chains of transmission, associated both with the City of Hume and the removalists,” Victoria’s COVID-19 Testing Commander Jeroen Weimar said.
“So, with the removalists, as we know, we took action yesterday around the Ariele apartments complex.
“We have identified in the initial testing results, four positive cases in the Ariele apartments, all on the third floor of that building.
“Those four cases are in two separate apartments, one is a male in his 60s, one is a household of three people.”
The man in his 60s attended the Carlton and Geelong game at the MCG on Saturday July 10, and was in level two of the MCC reserve.
Mr Weimar said the parents of the man in his 60s – who live in Craigieburn – have also tested positive.
The seventh case was a man in his 30s who attended the Craigieburn Coles around the same time as a member of a family of four from the City of Hume who had previously tested positive.
