Victoria recorded no new local cases of coronavirus on Monday as a popular St Kilda venue was fined more than $10,000 for blatant breaches of COVID-19 restrictions.

There were 20,690 tests processed in the past 24 hours, and more than 13,000 vaccine doses were administered. Two cases of COVID-19 have also been recorded in hotel quarantine, bringing the total active cases across the state to 23.

The state’s daily figures come after Riva bar in St Kilda was fined $10,904 by Victoria Police after footage posted on social media showed a crowd of mask-less patrons dancing in close proximity under a marquee on Saturday night.

On Sunday, Victorian health authorities warned holidaymakers returning from interstate trips to check if they’ve been in red or orange zones – particularly around Greater Sydney, the Central Coast, and areas of Greater Brisbane.

NSW recorded 16 new cases on Sunday – 13 of which were already in isolation and three of which were in an aged care home – and two in Queensland.

Popular supermarkets and bus routes are among NSW’s latest exposure sites. Anyone who visited the Coles at Pacific Square in Maroubra on Monday, June 28 between 7.10am and 8.20am or between 11pm and 11.45pm on the following day (Tuesday, June 29) is considered a close contact.
