Coronavirus back in Portland after 14 months

THE first cases of coronavirus in Glenelg Shire since August last year have so far spread no further than the family which contracted it.

Three positive tests were returned by a Portland family on Tuesday, following a week of the virus being detected in the city’s wastewater.

While those tests don’t quite line up with wastewater detections – samples returned clear over the weekend and it was present before the family was believed to have contracted it – there have been no more positive cases recorded. More details in Friday's Observer.
