UPDATE: Monday 11 October
The Geelong Arena has fully reopened to authorised users, following clearance from the Department of Health.

Any close contacts who are self-isolating have been advised to continue to do so until their 14-day quarantine period ends.
Wednesday 6th October 2021
The City has restricted access to Geelong Arena for a deep clean, after a community member who attended the facility was confirmed as a positive COVID-19 case.
The individual had attended Geelong Arena via the Victoria Street entrance on Monday 4 October.
The eastern (Victoria Street) section of the facility, which the individual accessed from 9am to 2.30pm, is now closed and cleaning and disinfection work has begun.
The City has contacted all tenants, contractors and employees who attended that section of Geelong Arena during the potential exposure period.
They have been asked to get tested for COVID-19 and to isolate while they await further instructions from the Department of Health.
Tenants who enter via Baxter Road can continue to use the separate western section of the facility.
Due to the clear division of the building, there are no restrictions on access for those who attended the western section on Monday.
The City encourages all residents to monitor the Department’s listed exposure sites and to get tested if they have any symptoms of COVID-19.
We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your support in maintaining the health of the wider Geelong Community.
