Victoria’s COVID tier 2 exposure sites list expands to include Coles, Woolworths, BP and AMPOL

Several supermarkets and petrol stations have been added to Victoria’s list of COVID exposure sites.

The new venues, which include two Coles stores, a Woolworths store, a BP and an AMPOL were added on Friday night.

All the sites have been added as tier 2 sites, meaning anyone who has visited at the times outlined is urged to get tested and isolate until a negative result is returned.

The new sites include:

Coles at Bundoora Square Shopping Centre on May 28 from 12pm-1pm and June 6 from 12pm-1pm

Woolworths at Bundoora Square Shopping Centre on May 31 from 12pm-12.40pm

Coles at Warringal Shopping Centre in Heidelberg on June 7 from 4.20pm-5.20pm

AMPOL, Thomastown on June 5 from 10.45am-11.25am

BP, Thomastown on May 28 from 10am-10.35am

The Department of Health also warned on Friday that there had been ‘unexpected’ detections of COVID made in the wastewater of several Melbourne suburbs.

The unexpected detections were made in the local government areas of Whitehorse, Manningham and Monash.

“While the unexpected detections may be due to someone who has had COVID-19, is no longer infectious and is continuing to ‘shed’ the virus or it may be due to an active but undiagnosed infectious case,” the department said.

Suburbs on alert include:

  • Ashwood
  • Blackburn
  • Box hill
  • Bulleen
  • Burwood
  • Burwood east
  • Chadstone
  • Clayton
  • Doncaster

Victoria recorded no new local cases of COVID on Friday as Melbourne moves out of lockdown.

It marked the first day without a local case since May 24, when a family tested positive for the virus and ended the state’s 86-day streak without community transmission.
