"We have to ready ourselves." Victoria confirms four new COVID-19 cases.
Four new COVID-19 cases have been uncovered among a family in Melbourne's north.
Health authorities were alerted to the cluster after a man from Whittlesea presented for testing on Sunday, after experiencing symptoms since May 20.
He and an asymptomatic male relative from a separate household both tested positive.
Two other close family contacts - a woman and a pre-school aged child - have also since been confirmed as COVID positive.
The source of the infection remains unknown.
Victoria's Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said on Monday afternoon that "we have to ready ourselves for any other positives".
Dr Sutton added that the risk of community transmission is higher in the colder months, explaining: "We are going into a period where people spend more time indoors and are in closer proximity."
The following have been identified as exposure sites, with people who have attended these venues at these times required to get tested and to isolate until further notice:
- Jump! Swim School, 4/37 The Concord, Bundoora VIC 3083, on May 21 between the hours of 8:55am and 10:15am.
- Highpoint Shopping Centre, 120-200 Rosamond Road, Maribyrnong VIC 3032, on May 20 between 5:00pm and 8:00pm.
Eurovision winner to take drug test after online controversy.
The Italian rock band that won the Eurovision Song Contest returned home Sunday to the adulation of fans and so much speculation that the lead singer had snorted cocaine during the show that he offered to take a drug test.
Maneskin lead singer Damiano David strongly denied he had taken drugs during Saturday's live television broadcast.
But he offered to take a drug test upon his return to Rome to put the matter to rest and refute social media speculation fuelled by footage of him bending over a table during the competition.

The band was the bookmakers' favourite going into the Eurovision finale and sealed the win early Sunday with the highest popular vote in the enormously entertaining, and incredibly kitsch, annual song festival.
