Another day another update as Bacchus Marsh fights COVID.

Yesterday we reported that 8 teachers and one student at Bacchus Marsh Grammar had tested positive to COVID19, while the BP service station in Maddingley was closed for deep cleaning after a positive case in Wednesday July 14th.

So far today there has been no new updates relating to positive test results from the Bacchus Marsh community however there has been another Tier 1 hotspot identified.

A post on their Facebook page says they were notified yesterday afternoon by authorities that a positive case had visited the gym.

“Thankfully for our thorough tracing system at Shape It, we were able to identify the very few members who were in at the same time as the infected member.” the post said.

“We would like to reassure our members and the general public that we have been following and going above and beyond what has been advised by the CHO in our general cleaning of the gym and will today be undergoing a deep clean”

“Let’s do the right thing and stay home and fingers crossed we will see you all back at Shape It Fitness in the very near future.”
