COVID wastewater warning for Daylesford, Hepburn and Hepburn Springs

A new warning has been issued for residents in areas of regional Victoria after COVID-19 fragments were discovered in wastewater.

The Department of Health and Human Services says coronavirus fragments were detected in wastewater at Daylesford, Hepburn and Hepburn Springs.

Anyone who was in the area from November 28 to December 1 is being urged to get tested if they develop symptoms, no matter how mild.

Testing is available at Daylesford Health from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

The warning comes despite there currently being zero active cases in Victoria out of 10,000 tests conducted on Wednesday.

However, thousands of Colac residents and visitors have also been urged to come forward for testing after the detection of viral fragments in wastewater.
