New coronavirus cases have again surged to record levels in Victoria, with 532 infections reported in the 24 hours to Monday morning.

Premier Daniel Andrews said there had also been six further coronavirus deaths, while 44 people were battling the infection in intensive care.

“The key message today for every single Victorian regardless of where they work and regardless of where they live – you simply can’t go to work if you have symptoms,” Mr Andrews said on Monday.

“Otherwise, these restrictions will be in place for longer than they should be, and I’m sorry to say, we will see more people die, particularly in aged care,” he said.

“If people are going to work sick, people will become infected. And therefore, people will die.”
