Testing Commander Jeroen Weimar says Victoria has a “large net” around its most recent outbreak after it has recorded 26 new cases.

He said authorities have identified a “large number” of primary close contacts and are starting day 13 tests.

“Day 13 testing is now starting for Ariel apartments, we’ll of course be going through the MCG wave over the weekend in terms of getting their day 13 tests,” he said.

He said sustaining isolation for the full length of an isolation period is important because some contacts are testing positive a second time around after a week or eight or nine days.

“We have to sustain that isolation, that is how we’ll stay and get on top of … this outbreak.”
