But today officials said the supermarket visited by an infected man was actually the Woolworths in Epping North.
The latter supermarket is on Lyndarum Drive, ten minutes up the road.
Anybody who was at Woolworths Epping North on May 8 between 5.40pm and 6.38pm needs to get tested and isolate until they return a negative result.
Health officials have contacted Woolworths to ensure all potentially exposed staff get tested and isolate.
It comes as traces of coronavirus have been detected in wastewater in Melbourne’s north, Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has announced.
The traces of COVID-19 were picked up in testing last night in the Epping and Wollert area.
Authorities are urging anybody with potential COVID-19 symptoms – fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, and loss or change in taste and smell – to get tested.
A pop-up testing site will open at 9.30am tomorrow at Epping Stadium on Harvest Home Road.
There is also a testing site at Epping’s Northern Hospital, which is open 9am-5pm seven days a week.
“These types of traces of coronavirus in wastewater are getting detected regularly – with more people leaving Hotel Quarantine – cleared of the virus but still shedding, and moving around our community,” a statement from the Department of Health read.
“While the detections may be due to someone who has had COVID-19 that is no longer infectious continuing to ‘shed’ the virus, it is also possible that it is due to an active but undiagnosed infectious case.
“This detection is of note because there are public exposure sites in the area relating to the Wollert case, who has been isolating in a health hotel outside the catchment.”
The infected man who sparked the coronavirus scare earlier this month likely contracted the disease from a neighbouring guest in hotel quarantine.
