Victoria has recorded its biggest day of COVID-19 growth since March.
A total of 75 new cases were confirmed on Monday morning, the biggest daily jump since March 31.
It is also the fourth biggest daily jump recorded in Victoria since the start of the virus spread.
There are now 288 active cases in Victoria.
Only one of Monday's tally was from those in hotel quarantine, with the majority coming from the previously identified Melbourne hotspots.
In addition to the quarantine case, 14 were linked to known outbreaks, 37 were detected through routine testing and 23 were under investigation.
Greater Bendigo recorded its ninth and only active COVID-19 case on Sunday
It is the sole active case in central Victoria.
Bendigo Health chief executive Peter Faulkner said the health service has noted a spike in visits to its screening clinic during the past week.
"Testing has increased in response to the high number of cases detected in metropolitan areas," Mr Faulkner said.
"We are conducting about 200 tests per day and have undertaken almost 9000 tests since the pandemic started."
Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan said any number of coronavirus cases, big or small, presents a challenge.
"We know just one case can result in many more people being infected because this is a highly infectious disease," Ms Allan said.
"It is a disease that spreads so quickly and through people who don't even display symptoms.
"The cases are overwhelmingly located in those hotspot suburbs," heath minister Jenny Mikakos said.
"Obviously we are concerned by the increasing numbers and upward trend.
"We've got many cases across the inner northern suburbs and the western suburbs of Melbourne, but not exclusively and it's important to reiterate to the community that you are not immune from catching coronavirus by virtue of the postcode that you live in."
Victoria's chief health officer Brett Sutton said there would be discussions in coming days about implementing new movement laws.
"It is absolutely concerning," said Dr Sutton.
"But we know what will turn this around. It's people stepping forward for testing and also isolating with symptoms.
"If you've got the symptoms, you shouldn't be going out visiting people or going to work."
Dr Sutton said a suburban lockdown was a possibility, but said there were many potential issues that came with such a measure.
He said there were a range of challenges that arose when trying to lock down individual suburbs, including people moving outside suburbs that were locked down.
