Latest Information for Term 4, 2020

Whilst it is great to see the numbers of new cases falling across the State, coronavirus is still in our communities, which is why it’s so important to continue encouraging community to get tested even with the mildest of symptoms. The areas of Casey and Dandenong have recently been identified as key areas of concern with community transmission, with new cases across Hallam, Narre Warren, Clyde North and Noble Park.  

New walk-up pop-up testing stations in Dandenong Market, Noble Park, Hallam and Clyde North are now open – please refer to posters attached. You can also find information on these testing locations on the DHHS website - https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/where-get-tested-covid-19

  • Cases in the City of Casey have increased and that's not good.
  • We need help to keep the situation under control so we can get to Stage 2 as soon as possible.
