In his press conference today, the Premier confirmed it was unknown how the case came to be.

“I’ll be grateful to everyone in the Echuca community if you’ve got any symptoms please come and get tested, that will give us a really clear sense of what we’re up against there and it’s too early for us to say.

“Let's get to the bottom of that Echuca matter, and hopefully next week we can have good news for regional Victoria.”

Anyone with even the mildest of symptoms or concerns is urged to get tested.

Test results are being returned in about 24 to 48 hours.

Those who are tested must self isolate until results return and are negative.

The Echuca man is self-isolating in his home.
