Health work to contain Wimmera Covid outbreak


Grampians Public health is working to contain a number of Covid outbreaks across The Wimmera.

A number of cases have popped up at schools in Stawell and Nhill, as well as the Luv-a-Duck Poultry Facility in Nhill.

Infectious disease physician Aaron Bloch says the virus is mainly spreading among unvaccinated children.

"We are dealing with community transmission in both towns, we are working really closely with health leaders to get on top of it and protect the community," he said.
