The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has confirmed two Ballarat residents have contracted COVID-19.
The new infections follow more than two months of no COVID-19 cases within the Ballarat region.
As COVID-19 restrictions continue to change, it is vitally important that we continue to do all we can to keep Ballarat safe. We would urge the following:
· If you are unwell, stay home and get tested
· Practice social distancing and regular hand hygiene
· You may wish to consider wearing a face mask when out in public as an additional preventative measure
· Be kind to and support our local businesses
