Concerns over Covid nurse
Victoria's testing commander Jeroen Weimar said he was "exceptionally concerned" about a nurse who tested positive for Covid-19 after working at two different hospitals.
He confirmed the nurse was looking after three Covid patients at Epping Private Hospital.
It has emerged she also worked two shifts at Northern Hospital on June 11 to 12.
There are now 22 Northern Hospital staff who are isolating for 14 days, as well as nine primary close contacts of the nurse at Epping Private.
