New tier 2 and tier 3 exposure sites have also been published by the Department of Health. For the full break down of exposure sites visit http://coronavirus.vic.gov.au/exposure-sites.
There have been two new local cases of coronavirus recorded, Victorian health authorities have confirmed, taking the total to 16.
COVID-19 response commander Jeroen Weimar said both new cases were identified as having attended the MCG for the Geelong v Carlton AFL game on July 10.
Both were sitting in the Members' Reserve at the MCG.
On Wednesday, authorities confirmed a man in his 60s from the locked-down Ariele Apartments complex had tested positive to the virus. The man attended the game on Saturday and was seated in level two of the reserve.
Mr Weimar said the two new cases - an adult and a child - were not known contacts of the infected man.
"They were sitting in very different parts of the ground. There's no obvious relationship between them. The interviews and discussions are ongoing," he said.
He said it appeared to be a case of "stranger-to-stranger transmission".
"You will appreciate we're dealing with a very dynamic situation here, a very rapidly moving situation here," Mr Weimar said.
"What we've got is two separate incursions into Victoria over the last three or four days, two chains of transmission, at least one is moving very actively and very aggressively across the state."

Breaking down the cases
Mr Weimar said authorities were now onto their seventh ring of contact tracing in the past 72 hours across the outbreaks.
"The first ring was the removalists that were here at the end of last week, we identified them late on Sunday night into Monday morning," he said.
"The second ring was the families, the people they moved into the state and the places where they picked up their furniture.
"The third ring was the neighbours, the residents in the apartment building, at Ariele.
"The fourth ring is friends of those residents and ask neighbours, at least one of whom has turned positive.
"The fifth ring is families of the friends of the people in the area, and we have at least two positive cases in the family ring.
"The sixth ring is the primary close contacts of those cases, we are testing those people today. And the seventh ring is their secondary close contacts, who are all locked down in isolation.
"This is probably the fastest response we have ever seen to an outbreak that's moving more quickly than we have ever seen in Victoria, or I suspect anywhere else in Australia."
Five cases are linked to the Hume cluster - the family of four and one person from Coles
Six cases are linked to the NSW removalists who attended the Ariele Apartments complex.
Four are from the apartments themselves, while two are parents of a positive case - the man who attended the AFL game.
The man had attended the match with a man in his 50s from Barwon Heads, who subsequently tested positive.
The Barwon Heads man is understood to be a teacher at Bacchus Marsh Grammar and has infected his household contacts, a man in his 60s and a nine-year-old child.
Both Bacchus Marsh Grammar and Barwon Heads Primary School have been closed and more than 3500 students and staff are self-isolating.
Both of the new COVID cases were detected from the testing done around the MCC reserve at the MCG for people who attended the Carlton v Geelong match on July 10.
Masks and lockdown measures considered
Mr Weimar said the state had introduced masks because the removalists were not wearing masks, but their client was and had not tested positive.
Jeroen Weimar was asked if a lockdown was being considered in Victoria.
"The team is reviewing all the data and all the epidemiology," he said.
"This situation is moving not so much hour by hour, but half-hour by half-hour.
"If we have more information to share, we'll share it."
No new additional cases of COVID-19 have been added to the 10 announced in Victoria on Wednesday.
The Health Department announced seven of the 10 cases on Wednesday morning, while later in the day Bacchus Marsh Grammar confirmed one of its staff members had also tested positive to the coronavirus.
It is understood two of the staff member's family members also tested positive, bringing the total to 10.
A full list of the COVID-19 exposure sites are found here.
All 10 cases are linked to current outbreaks - the first, starting at the Ariele Apartments complex where two COVID-19-positive Sydney removalists visited; and the second, a cluster that started with a Hume family who had returned from NSW.
Department data showed 15,161 COVID-19 vaccinations were administered on Wednesday and more than 27,000 test results were received.
Restrictions change as exposure sites grow
From Thursday, anyone aged over 12 will be required to wear a mask in all indoor settings, including schools and workplaces, unless an exception applies.
Victoria's acting chief health officer Clare Looker announced the directive at 10.30pm on Wednesday.
"Here are steps we can take right now to protect ourselves and each other. That's why, face mask rules will change for Victorians aged 12 and above," Dr Looker said.
"Wearing a face mask will be mandatory indoors (not at home) unless an exception applies - this includes all workplaces, and secondary schools.
"Masks must also be worn outdoors if you cannot maintain 1.5m distance from people who aren't from your household (such as at an outdoor event)."
There are now more than 70 venues listed as COVID-19 exposure sites in Victoria as the state's health authorities try to contain another outbreak.
Health authorities added exposure sites at Barwon Heads, Campbellfield, Waurn Ponds, Highton, Broadmeadows and Craigieburn.
After dipping below 20 earlier in the week, Victoria's active cases are now at 26.
The new cases come after a school was forced to close its doors when a staff member tested positive on Wednesday.
Bacchus Marsh Grammar will close for two days as all teachers at a student-free staff day on July 12 have been told to get isolate and get tested.
NSW Health stated on Wednesday evening that Gundagai Coles Express, the Jindera Shell petrol station and the Shell petrol station in Hay had all been visited by "confirmed cases of COVID-19".
Anyone who visited Coles Express in Gundagai between 1am and 1.30am on Thursday, July 8 or the Shell petrol station in Jindera between 11.30am and 11.45am on Saturday, July 10 is considered a close contact.
They must get tested and immediately self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result.
Any patron who visited the Shell petrol station in Hay between 7.30am and 8am on Saturday, July 10 is considered a casual contact. They must get tested and self-isolate until they receive a negative result.
