Two new cases of coronavirus have been found in Melbourne's Arcare Aged Care facility.
Arcare Maidstone confirmed the two cases on Sunday, which will be added to Monday's total.
CEO Colin Singh said one is a 79-year-old resident and the other is a staff member. He said the resident lives close to the first two residents at the home who were earlier diagnosed with Covid.
"The resident, who has had both doses of the Pfizer vaccine, is asymptomatic but will be transferred to hospital for public health reasons, coordinated by the Victorian Department of Health," Mr Singh said.
"The RN had received the first dose of the vaccine and is also asymptomatic."
"All team members who worked at Arcare yesterday are required to get tested immediately and self-isolate for 14 days."
Deputy Chief Health Officer Professor Allen Cheng said health authorities are aware of the two new cases from Arcare "but we haven't got those details fully worked up yet".
Professor Cheng added one of these cases has the Delta variant of Covid-19 bringing the total number of cases with the variant to 10.
The source of the variant remains under investigation.
“We are keeping a very close eye on examining these cases more carefully," Professor Cheng said.
"We are working with them to see if there is any further information that can be obtained from these specimens."
There have been 72 community cases since the outbreak began, two of which have recovered.
Ten Melbourne suburbs on high alert
Ten Melbourne suburbs have been put on high alert after Covid-19 virus fragments were detected in sewage.
The inner west and northern suburbs of Aberfeldie, Essendon, Essendon West, Flemington, Footscray, Kensington, Maribyrnong, Moonee Ponds, Parkville and Travancore are served by the sewer catchment where the virus was detected.
Deputy Chief Health Officer Allen Cheng said these areas are of interest to authorities because "there are no confirmed cases in that area".
"There was one case in hotel quarantine," Professor Cheng said.
Thousands of residents in those suburbs are urged to monitor for symptoms as well as anyone who visited those areas.
"If you have any symptoms, please come forward. We are still seeing evidence of likely transmission between people that don't know each other," Prof Cheng said.
