Northern metropolitan Melbourne area outbreak

New coronavirus (COVID-19) cases have been identified in the northern metropolitan Melbourne area. Students from these schools and their families are asked to get tested, even if you do not have any symptoms:

  • East Preston Islamic College

East Preston Islamic College will be closed for 14 days. Croxton school, Northcote is currently closed and DHHS will be in contact with the school and students to provide further advice. To make sure we can fully track the spread of this virus, all students and staff, their families and close contacts are asked to get tested and stay at home until they get a negative result.

The coronavirus test is free and available to everyone. You do not need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. You do not need a Medicare card. There is no cost. If you cannot leave your home to get tested, free testing at home is also available.
