All Victorian SARS-CoV-2 cases by local government area, postcode and acquired source

Each row contains a single SARS-CoV-2 case and associated LGA, postcode and the mode of transmission.

An active case is someone who has tested positive and is currently in isolation. The department monitors active cases. A small number of cases that are not contactable are considered to have recovered after 28 days from diagnoses.

Residential location is the address provided by a person during contact tracing. This is not where they were infected. It may not be where the case currently resides (for example they might be in a hospital). Postcode of the case does not reflect where a person was infected and in the event that a case is detected and a residential postcode is not available a post code of 3999 is used. A confirmed case is a person who has a positive laboratory test for coronavirus (COVID-19).
