There were 11,829 coronavirus test results received in the past 24 hours.
Another 2833 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 on Friday.
It came as viral coronavirus fragments were recently detected in wastewater in Melbourne's south-east and a large catchment that services suburbs in Melbourne's north, west, and east.

The unexpected detections could be from a person or people with COVID-19 being in the early active infectious phase or it could be because they are continuing to shed the virus after the infectious period.
People who live in or have visited the following areas should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and get tested if any develop:
- North, west, and eastern suburbs from April 4 to 12. This detection is in a very large catchment that services suburbs stretching from Melbourne's north-west to the outer north-east.
- Cranbourne and surrounding suburbs from April 6 to 12.
These two new detections are in addition to the wastewater detection in the Ringwood area catchment announced on Monday.
