Victoria has recorded more than a week in triple-digit coronavirus cases with another spike after the weekend.
On Monday, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed 177 new cases bringing the state’s total to 3967.
On Sunday, there were 273 cases in the state and another death, while 216 cases were recorded on Saturday.
“So I would like to see a week of decreasing numbers before I come and say I have greater confident about the direction we’re going in.”
The new cases bring the total of an outbreak at La Manna supermarket in Essendon to six and Somerville Meats to 12.
There are now 144 cases linked to Al-Taqwa College in Truganina with 28 of the cases are in staff, 16 in students and the rest in household contacts.
“The last time they issued many more warnings than fines. They’re not mucking about. The time for warnings is over,” Andrews said.
Monday is the first day back for senior secondary students and those in Year 10 studying VCE subjects.
They will be subject to temperature checks on their arrival and if a student has a temperature of 37.5C or above, they will be required to return home.
On Sunday, Andrews confirmed prep to year 10 students in locked-down metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will learn from home until at least August 19.
“We can’t have the best part of 700,000 students as well as parents moving to and from school, moving around the community, as if there wasn’t a lockdown,” he said.
