Multiple Coles and Woolworths, Prahran Market added to growing Victorian exposure sites list
Victorian venues exposed to coronavirus have surged to 380 after dozens of new sites were added overnight.
Several Coles stores, in Roxburgh Park and Bentleigh, and a Woolworths in Caulfield North, were among the latest additions.
A nail salon in Roxburgh Village shopping centre was also listed as an exposure site after a confirmed case visited the venue.
The popular Prahran Market, at 163 Commercial Rd, South Yarra, said it had also been told by the health department that a positive case had visited the site, although it hasn’t been listed as an exposure venue on the government website yet.
Management said the positive shopper visited the market on Saturday July 17 from 9.40am to 11.15am, with the health department classifying the entire Prahran Market as a tier 1 exposure site.
The market was closed on Thursday in order to complete a deep clean and receive further advice from the health department.
“We are devastated by this news and our thoughts and well wishes are with all of our traders, customers and the market community as a whole,” management said.
“All staff working within the market during the exposure period will be immediately tested and quarantine for 14 days from the exposure date.
“We will also work closely with them to conduct a deep clean of both their stalls and the market as a whole.
“If you visited the market during the exposure period, you should immediately seek a test and then quarantine yourself in accordance with current DHHS requirements.”
Management said the shopper visited a number of traders including Pete n Rosie’s Deli, Q le Baker, Prahran Seafoods, John Cester’s Poultry and Game, Gary’s Quality Meats, Reliable Fruit and Veg and Market Lane Coffee.
