Funeral cleared


Rumours were rife that a Shepparton funeral on August 11 could have been the source of the local COVID outbreak city.

But investigat­ing police have revealed there were no breaches of the Victorian chief health officer’s orders, including exceeding the 50 people allowed at funerals at the time.

The Shepparton outbreak has been linked by genomic testing to cluster that started a month earlier in northern Melbourne.
