A COVID-19 positive traveller made multiple stops along the Hume Freeway/Highway in Victoria and NSW.

NSW Health and Victorian authorities declared a dozen new exposure locations from the NSW South Coast to Glenrowan, right back to the Melbourne CBD in evening announcements on Tuesday.

It comes after a traveller tested positive for COVID-19 following an interstate trip last week.

They returned a positive result after being tested for the virus six days after symptoms emerged on the day after they arrived home.

“NSW Health has been advised by the Victoria Department of Health and Human Services [DHHS] that a confirmed case of COVID-19 from Melburne was in Jervis Bay, Goulburn, Hyams Beach and Vincentia while potentially infectious,” NSW Health said.

“That person, who reported the onset of symptoms on May 25 and was tested [Monday], drove back to Melbourne on May 24.”
