Bendigo residents urged to get tested if they show symptoms

Residents in areas north-west of Bendigo are still being urged to get tested if they have symptoms, following the discovery of coronavirus fragments in wastewater.

The department of health says the unexpected detection may be due to someone who is shedding the virus and no longer infectious.

Close contacts of Bendigo and Axedale exposure sites will be re-tested.
