Today there were 14 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Victoria and five deaths have been reported - two men in their 80s, two women in their 80s and one woman in her 90s. All of today’s five deaths are linked to known outbreaks in aged care facilities.

Nine of the new cases are linked to outbreaks or complex cases and five are under investigation.

As of today, Victoria has 743 active cases and a total of 20,034 cases detected overall. There are 94 people in hospital, eight are in ICU.

Currently 376 active cases are linked to aged care settings and there’s 117 active cases in health care workers.

The Government released a dashboard with information about locations of outbreaks, the number of tests conducted in each local government area, postcode data and where current aged care outbreaks are located. You can find this information here: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/latest-news-and-data-coronavirus-covid-19

DHHS is advising that anyone who visited Woolworths at The Glen on Sunday 6 September 2020 or Burwood One Shopping Centre (East Burwood) on Sunday 13 September and/or Monday 14 September should watch for COVID-19 symptoms and if symptoms occur, get tested immediately and stay at home while you wait your results.

There are 3 active cases in Monash, a decrease of one case since yesterday. We’ve seen 312 total cases. Any variation in figures is understood to be part of the contact tracing reclassification.

There’s been 5,706 tests conducted in Monash in the past two weeks. Of all these tests, 0.1% returned a positive result for COVID-19. There’s more detailed information about testing here: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-testing-data-local-government-area

Below is the postcode breakdown for Monash. Please note that some postcodes fall across Monash and other municipalities. This data is current as at 19 September.

It’s important to note that these postcodes are where people live, not where they contracted the virus. The virus is everywhere and people should always assume that anyone, anywhere is carrying it and protect themselves accordingly in line with advice. The safest thing to do is to STAY HOME and under Stage 4, you cannot leave the 5km radius around your home during exercise and essential shopping.

Thank you for the update!

My wife received this message today 😍. I am so proud that after bringing the 10% waiver to the table I was able to get a majority to agree to support it.

We already charge the lowest rates in the State and it may only be a small discount, but due to the COVID-19 crisis, so many people have lost jobs, have hours cut, have lost rent, are experiencing mental health issues etc. Every little bit counts.

Personally I would have preferred not to levy rates at all, but it’s critically important that we maintain essential services such as meals on wheels for the elderly, child immunisations, bin collections, footpath maintenance - the list goes on.

My wife received this message today 😍. I am so proud that after bringing the 10% waiver to the table I was able to get a majority to agree to support it.We already charge the lowest rates in the State and it may only be a small discount, but due to the COVID-19 crisis, so many people have lost jobs, have hours cut, have lost rent, are experiencing mental health issues etc. Every little bit counts.Personally I would have preferred not to levy rates at all, but it’s critically important that we maintain essential services such as meals on wheels for the elderly, child immunisations, bin collections, footpath maintenance - the list goes on.

Thank you, 10% is 10%. I am happy with Monash Council after coming from Stonnington area. At least they didn't go up 10%. Amen.

A person who owns a few properties, in Australia, is not deserving of rate relief.

At first glance I thought ours had gone up by $8 per month (we pay monthly instalments) until I read the fine print that it’s distributed over 9 months not 10 so a big savings actually. Amazing when everything else is going up except our salaries!

I live in Yarra ranges, one of the most expensive shires and they have not offered nearly as much as monash have .

I wish other councils would take a leap out of your book. Well done Stuart.

Really ??? Good on you Mayor Stuart James I live in Monash. Lowest rates in the state my ass !! You and all property developers. My rates have increased $650 from last year !!! Even with the COVID waiver is still $350 more. Over the last 3 years an increase of over $1100. You have no shame !!! Scoundrels even in these unprecedented times.

Compassion is the word! Good on you, Mayor!

Yes it's very good

Thank you so much we really appreciate it!!!

Come with me on a tour of the new $25M redevelopment of the Oakleigh Recreation Centre. We're not quite there yet as we've been delayed by restrictions on the number of workers we can have on site, but we're not all that far away.

Doesn't it look amazing?

Currently 464 active cases are linked to aged care settings and there’s 143 active cases in health care workers (70% of these cases are among workers in private aged care).

The Government released a dashboard with information about locations of outbreaks, the number of tests conducted in each local government area, postcode data and where current aged care outbreaks are located.

Thank you for the updates. Monash is looking good. Hope people are recovering well 🙏

Thank you for the update!

Exciting day for the City of Monash with one of our young Hughesdale residents being named the youth ambassador for Blue Ribbon Day

It’s fair to say he was absolutely chuffed and did an awesome job painting his house in blue and white

Victoria Police always do an amazing job, but it has never been more evident than right now during this time of crisis. Thankyou to all our men and women in blue for putting their lives on the line to protect others. We owe them an unpayable debt of gratitude
