A woman from regional Victoria was shocked to find a nasty note left on her windshield, after someone assumed she was from a Covid hotspot.

The woman from Traralgon, Victoria, about 160km away from Melbourne found the note on her car earlier this month.

On Facebook, she explained her number plate has the name of the Melbourne dealership she purchased her car from.

"I’m assuming that’s why this lovely note was left on my windscreen this evening in the Alidi car park," she wrote on Facebook.

"I can not believe the insanity and the nastiness right now."

The note scribbled on a lined piece of paper said: "Get back to Melboune (sic), selfish c**ts".

Jodie Oliver told the Herald Sun she was "shocked" by the note left on her car and that it was sad Covid had created a divide, and brought about such judgement.

Fortunately, people in the Facebook group where Ms Oliver shared the photo of the note were also appalled someone would write such a thing.

"Sorry this has happened to you. Absolutely no excuse for that behaviour!" one person said.

Others agreed it was "horrible" and "disgusting".

Senior Sergeant Peter Watson told the Herald Sun, people should not assume things "because obviously cars can be bought from anywhere".

Regional Victoria, with the exception of Greater Ballarat, is free from lockdown, while Melbourne is awaiting a road map to see when its lockdown will end.

Both Ballarat and Melbourne will have some restrictions eased from midnight on Friday. 

Testing is being ramped up in Ballarat to combat the cluster, while thousands of additional vaccine doses will also be sent to the town.

Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said the seven-day lockdown for Ballarat, which started at 11.59pm on Wednesday, will give the city "the best chance of opening up again in the shortest time possible".

In contrast, the city of Shepparton to Melbourne's north has come out of lockdown after a local outbreak of the Delta variant was brought under control.

Victoria recorded 514 new locally-acquired Covid cases on Thursday.
