Coronavirus information

Euroa exposure site

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has listed the Euroa BP Service Station at 29 Tarcombe St as a confirmed tier one exposure site.

This means a confirmed case visited the site during their infectious period. It does not mean there is an ongoing risk associated with the premises.

Anyone who visited the Euroa BP Service Station on Monday, May 24 from 5pm to 6pm should get tested immediately and quarantine for 14 days from the exposure.

Victoria moved to circuit breaker restrictions from 11.59pm Thursday, May 27, 2021. These settings will remain in place until 11.59pm on Thursday, June 3.

The community is reminded that this means there are only five reasons to leave your home, these being:

We encourage the community to remain vigilant during this time and if they experience any symptoms to also get tested. As a community, we can get through this by working together and continuing to do the right thing.

Impacts to Council services

We have made the tough decision to keep our doors closed until Tuesday, June 8.

As you would know, a tier 1 coronavirus (COVID-19) exposure site was identified at Euroa BP on Monday, May 24 from 5pm to 6pm and anyone who visited the site has been asked to quarantine for 14 days.

Council has decided reopening its doors to align with the 14-day quarantine period is the safest decision for our community.
