The city has been without confirmed active cases of COVID-19 for several weeks.
It's the latest unexplained drop in the number of COVID-19 cases in a central Victorian shire.
On May 25 two active cases - one in Gannawarra, one in Central Goldfields - vanished from the Department statistics days after they were first reported.
A Loddon case has disappeared and re-appeared from statistics several times.
In relation to the Loddon case, DHHS told the Bendigo Advertiser that numbers were subject to change as disease detectives followed up cases and further analysed data.
"Reclassification can occur for a variety of reasons including the initial recording of incorrect residential address details, duplicate notifications for the same person - as notifications may come both from pathology labs and the treating doctor - and the recording of interstate cases," they said.
"This can be either other states notifying us of Victorians diagnosed and treated in another state, or vice-versa.
"Protocol dictates the case should be recorded in the state where diagnosis and treatment occurred, regardless of where they normally reside."
Central Victoria has only one active case, in the Campaspe shire.
