Another active case has been confirmed in Moorabool, just a day after health authorities recorded the shire's first in months.
Moorabool now has five total cases, with two active infections, according to figures released this afternoon.
The shire, between Melbourne and Ballarat, has a large population of people commuting in and out - either to Ballarat or Melbourne.
It's a concern mayor David Edwards highlighted to The Courier last week.
SO WHERE IS MOORABOOL SHIRE?
No more information has been released on the new active cases.
Ballarat has gone another day without recording a COVID-19 case despite increased testing.
It has now been almost two months - May 17 - since the city had a new case, with Ballarat flatlining on 11 infections since the pandemic began earlier this year.
Fellow regional cities have not been as lucky, with Geelong (five active cases), Bendigo (four active cases) and even Warrnambool (one active case) recording new cases in the past week.
Another 177 cases were confirmed this morning by Premier Daniel Andrews after a staggering almost-1400 infections last week recorded across Victoria.
Hepburn has had three total cases and Golden Plains one since March.
Ballarat's leaders including council chief Janet Dore and mayor Ben Taylor are urging the community to wear masks when in public and to not travel outside of the municipality unless absolutely necessary.
If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, make an appointment either online or by phone (4311 1571) to take a test at Lucas Community Hub. Tests are by appointment only.
