COVID-19 Exposure Sites – Sircuit Bar and The Peel Hotel December 10th

..

.

The text below has been taken directly from the Victorian Department of Health’s Facebook page:

.

“The Department of Health has been notified that on Friday 10 December a case positive for the Omicron variant attended Sircuit Bar, Fitzroy between 9pm and midnight and The Peel Hotel, Collingwood between 11.30pm and 3am.
It is estimated about 320 people were at the Peel Hotel and more than 410 people were at Sircuit during these times.
.
If you attended either of these venues at these times you are a close contact. You must quarantine immediately. If you are fully vaccinated, you must quarantine for seven days from the date you attended the venues. If you are not fully vaccinated, you must quarantine for 14 days from the date you attended the venues.
.
You are required to get a standard PCR test as soon as possible and continue to quarantine at home. If you have tested negative but later develop symptoms, please get tested without delay.
You must have another PCR test on the day before your quarantine period is due to end and receive a negative result before your quarantine can be complete.
.
The people you live with are not required to get a test, but anyone who is symptomatic should isolate and get tested as soon as possible.
.
Complementary public health actions are underway and sites are being appropriately managed.
.
Other patrons who entered Sircuit on 10 December between 6pm and 9pm are being contacted by the Department of Health and asked to self-identify if they were present beyond 9pm. They are also strongly advised to get a standard PCR test and isolate until they get a negative result.
.
We’re still learning more about this variant, so we’re taking careful steps to ensure the safety and health of everyone in the community.
.
All Victorians can play their part in reducing the spread of Omicron – or any other variant – by getting tested the moment they notice symptoms or as soon as they are told they are a contact, and practising COVIDSafe behaviours such as wearing masks and checking in.
.
We’d also encourage everyone to come forward to get their COVID-19 booster shot as soon as you’re able to, so you can continue to protect your family, friends and the broader community.
