Regional Victoria's COVID-free streak has finally come to an end.
A confirmed COVID-19 case has been confirmed in Shepparton this morning.
The news comes on a day where Victoria confirmed 55 new COVID-19 cases.
Traces of COVID-19 were first detected in Shepparton wastewater last week, which prompted a push for higher testing rates in the region.
The city has a population of about 50,000 people and is about 180 kilometres north of Melbourne.
Goulburn Valley Health chief executive Matt Sharp confirmed the case on Facebook on Friday morning.
He said the person was currently at home and isolating.
However, there is no further information about the movements of the person.
Meanwhile, also among the new infections is a police officer based at Knox station, in Melbourne's eastern suburbs.
A Victoria Police spokeswoman told AAP the office will be professionally cleaned and police and support staff will be asked not to attend during this time.
"Victoria Police will work closely with the Department of Health as they conduct contact tracing to determine whether anyone else was in close contact with those who tested positive for coronavirus," she said.
AAP understands 12 officers are self-isolating after coming into contact with the infected case.
