Latest case numbers

Two new cases of COVID-19 have been reported for the Loddon Shire today.

The number of active cases is 22, including seven in the Inglewood district postcode and four each in the Bridgewater and Pyramid Hill postcodes.

Meanwhile, the State Government today says more than six million rapid antigen tests will be delivered by today for the first fortnight of surveillance testing, helping to stop the spread of coronavirus in schools and early childhood settings before it reaches the classroom.

"This surveillance testing is strongly recommended for all primary and secondary school students and staff, twice-weekly at home before school, while students and staff at specialist schools are recommended to test five days each week due to the higher risk of severe illness for medically vulnerable children," it said

"All 51,000 air purification devices have arrived in government and low-fee non-government schools in time for the beginning of term, helping remove potentially infectious particles from high-risk areas of schools – while more than 300 shade sails are already under construction, helping more classes learn safely outdoors."
