A confirmed COVID-19 case has forced the closure of Ocean Grove’s Boorai Centre today.

In a text message, seen by the Independent, Geelong council said a child that attends the centre had contracted coronavirus.

“Please be advised that The City of Greater Geelong has been notified by the Department of Health & Human Services of a confirmed case of Covid-19 in a child that attends the Boorai Centre,” the text read.

“The centre has been instructed to close effective Friday 10 July until further advice can be provided.”

The Independent has confirmed the text, sent after 10pm last night, was legitimate.
