COVID Increase Across Victoria

COVID increase across Victoria

2 November 2023


Community transmission of COVID is increasing across Victoria.

This is an expected part of the ongoing evolution of COVID in the community, as our immunity wanes with time.

These increases do not appear to be linked to a single new variant.

The best way to prevent those you love from getting infected is to protect yourself. If you don’t get COVID, you can’t spread COVID. 

These 6 steps can help you stay ahead:

  1. Wearing a face mask if you have symptoms or in high-risk settings
  2. Staying up to date with your COVID vaccination
  3. Taking a test if you have symptoms
  4. Staying at home if sick
  5. Meeting outdoors or letting fresh air in when indoors
  6. Talking to your GP about COVID medicines.

The Department of Health will continue to monitor surveillance indicators and keep the public informed of when COVID transmission returns to a low level of activity.
