COVID-19: Daniel Andrews provides Victoria update | SBS News
Victoria recorded an additional 216 COVID-19 cases on Saturday, Premier Daniel Andrews said, following Friday’s record high of 288 cases.
Mr Andrews urged Victorians in lockdown to wear a mask out of an “abundance of caution” when leaving their home over the weekend, but said it was not compulsory.
One man in his 90’s died from the virus, and Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said outbreaks in aged care facilities were concerning.
Authorities urged Victorians to get tested should they have any COVID-19 symptoms in the 150 testing locations around the state.
