A second COVID-19 exposure on Melbourne’s Pakenham metro rail line on New Year’s Eve has been revealed by Victoria’s health department.

An infected person travelled Pakenham-bound from Flinders Street station to Westall station in the early hours of New Year’s Day, triggering a warning to all other passengers to get tested immediately and isolate until a negative result.

The initial time period was listed as 3am to 4am, but has since changed to 4.30am to 5am.

Late on Monday, the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services also added a city-bound service to the same warning, as the case travelled from Westall Station to Flinders Street between 9pm and 9.30pm on December 31.

The same advice has been issued for the evening trip: all passengers who travelled on the line at that time should test and isolate until they receive a negative result.

Good Guys Nunawading was also added to the DHHS exposure site list on Monday night, with a COVID-positive person having shopped there on December 29 between 9.30am and 10am.

Those who also shopped at the store at the same time are advised to test and isolate until a negative result.

The Springvale Shopping Centre on Buckingham Avenue was also added as an exposure site late on Monday night, after a known case shopped there between 11am and 12.30pm on December 29.

People who were at the venue at the same time should test and isolate until a negative result.

A number of timeframes, locations and advice levels also changed on Monday night for:

  • Tao Dumplings in Camberwell
  • Nandos in Elizabeth Street
  • Melbourne Central Lion Hotel
  • Puffing Billy/ Lakeside Paddle Boats at Emerald Lake Park
  • Advice for people who visited known exposure sites Stomping Ground Brewing Company, Two Bob Snob, Melbourne Boat Hire, Bodriggy Brewing Company, Merryman Cafe, and IKEA Springvale’s Cafe were also upgraded, with people now asked to isolate for 14 days.
  • In the case of IKEA Springvale, advice became more detailed: anyone who had been at the store between 4pm and 6.30pm on December 30 should monitor for symptoms, but anyone who had been at the store’s cafe needed to go into isolation immediately.

Interactive: Venue exposure sites mapped

Sydneysiders and Melburnians looking to find out whether they have been to a venue recently visited by someone later diagnosed with coronavirus can now do so more easily thanks to a new service that overlays alert locations onto a map.

The website covid19nearme.com.au was built by a Sydney data expert and uses information provided by the NSW government’s COVID-19 data program and Victoria’s Department of Health and Human Services Victoria to visualise a long list of venue alerts put out sometimes multiple times per day.

The map, embedded below, doesn’t include public transport routes in NSW. They can be found on the NSW government’s official list of locations.
