COVID-19 in Warracknabeal
Late yesterday we learned that two members of our community tested positive for COVID-19.
Both people were unknowingly exposed elsewhere in Victoria, and have been quarantining strictly since being informed they were primary close contacts (PCCs). As all PCCs must do,
they were tested on day 13 of their quarantine, and, as some PCCS do, have returned positive results
The Grampians Public Health Unit has advised that because both people have been in isolation for their entire infectious period no exposure sites have been generated by either case.
In order to provide the community with further information about the situation, Grampians Public Health Unit member Dr Aaron Bloch will be available for questions
at 2pm, Saturday 25th September 2021 on the following webinar
