1st October 2020

Hello and welcome to your Multilingual News Service connecting communities and

providing up-to-date information about the coronavirus…. produced by the NEMBC MEDIA.

Premier Daniel Andrews says he’s “deeply grateful” to everyone getting COVID tests, as Victoria records 15 new cases and 2 further fatalities which brings the state death toll to 800.

This is also the first time the state has been under 300 active cases since June.

19 mystery cases have been recorded over the past two weeks.

Melbourne’s two-week case average is now 15 and less than one in regional Victoria.

8 cases have been linked to Chadstone shopping centre, and there are pop-up clinics in the area.

Residents of Anglesea have been urged to go and get tested at pop-up clinics in the area after sewage testing revealed possible active cases.


Testing is set to be ramped up in high risk workplaces to prevent COVID outbreaks as the state opens up.

Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Tuesday that 25 per cent of on-site workers in high-risk industries will be tested weekly as they increase their asymptomatic screening program.


This will start with 95 businesses, mostly meat and poultry processing plants, but is expected to expand.

Farming industries are also making a push for younger Australians to fill the job gap in farming and fruit picking.

Recipients of Jobseeker and Youth Allowance are being encouraged to take farming jobs.

The Federal Government is also reopening its Seasonal Worker Program and Pacific Labour Scheme to bring in Pacific and Timorese workers for rural and regional jobs.


Emergency relief regulations for commercial tenants and landlords have been extended till the end of 2020.

The new regulations give an extension of the Commercial Tenancy Relief Scheme which gives commercial tenants and landlords increased protection and security.

Tenants who have sought rent relief cannot be evicted or have their rent increased.

The Victorian Small Business Commission will also be able to issue binding rent reduction orders in situations where landlords refuse to respond to tenants or engage in negotiations in good faith.

Minister for Small Business Jaala Pulford said she encourages private landlords “who’ve done the right thing” by giving rent relief to their tenants to apply for a hardship grant.


This week marks the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrated in many East Asian communities and is a time to give thanks and connect with family and loved ones.

It’s not possible to have normal celebrations with large family gatherings due to COVID 19.

The best way to stay safe and enjoy the festival this year is to stay at home and celebrate with the people you live with.

By following the rules and listening to the health advice, you are helping to protect the people you love in our community.

Viv Nguyen from Chairperson of the Victorian Multicultural Commission “wished all Victorians who are celebrating this week a very happy festival”.


I’m (name)… thanks so much for listening and see you next time for more news.

Stay safe.
