Costco, CBD building in Melbourne’s growing list of exposure sites

Wholesaler Costco, a shopping centre in Melbourne’s north and a CBD office building could have been exposed to COVID-19 after an infected person visited the sites.
The locations are the latest to be added to Victoria’s exposure sites list after a Kmart store, a Coles supermarket and a CBD diamond dealer were included yesterday.
The case attended Costco Docklands on May 30 between 3pm and 4.30pm, the Department of Health marking the site as a Tier Two, requiring all those who attended during the specified times to get tested.
Costco was previously been listed as an exposure site, with a potentially infectious person also visiting the wholesaler on May 31 – which is a Tier One site.
Merrifield City Shopping Centre in Mickleham has also been listed as a Tier Two site for May 31 between the times of 9.45am and 10.40am.
Kmart Sanctuary Lakes in Point Cook was added as a Tier One site yesterday after a positive case attended the store on May 26 between 5.10pm and 6.30pm.
Health advice for shoppers who attended the store during those times is to get tested and isolate for 14 days.
A number of locations in Brunswick were also listed as Tier Two sites, including Barkly Square Shopping Centre and the Coles supermarket inside.
The positive case shopped at Coles between 4pm and 5pm on May 27.
Meanwhile, diamond dealer World Shiner was marked as a Tier One exposure site after a case attended the Collins Street shop on May 31.
OPSM on Collins Street was also labelled as a Tier Two site for the same day.
The string of new exposure sites comes after some locations were removed due to two cases being reclassified as false positives.
