Two new locally acquired COVID-19 cases have been recorded in Victoria on the state’s second day of its five-day “circuit breaker” lockdown.

One case was also detected inside the state’s hotel quarantine program.

A total of 21,475 Victorians were tested for the deadly virus yesterday.

The results come after Victoria’s health department published a list of four new coronavirus exposure sites on its website early this morning.

The four locations – a Woolworths, a bakery, an aquatic centre and a swim school – have been listed as ‘Tier One’ infection sites after they were visited by someone infectious with COVID-19.

Anyone who was at the four locations at the listed times is being directed into mandatory 14-day self isolation and must get tested for COVID-19.

The exposure sites and times are as follows:

  • Elite Swimming, Pascoe Vale on February 8, between 5pm and 6pm
  • Woolworths inside Broadmeadows Central in Broadmeadows on February 9, between 12.15pm and 12.30pm

The new alerts come as Victorians wake to their second day of hard lockdown, with non-essential businesses closed and residents unable to leave home except for four essential reasons.

It brings the total number of cases linked to the cluster to 14.
