Good morning everyone, and welcome back to our live coverage of Australian news and the coronavirus.
Both New South Wales and Victoria are keeping an eye on potential spread from the Holiday Inn near Melbourne airport. Victoria yesterday recorded two new cases of transmission related to the hotel. On Sunday, one hotel quarantine worker first tested positive, and on Tuesday afternoon, another worker and one former guest also tested positive.
NSW also issued an alert for any of its residents who were at the Holiday Inn, between 27 January and 9 February, on any floor of the hotel. Previously, only people who were on the third floor had to isolate.
Late yesterday, Eddie McGuire also resigned as Collingwood football club president, and James Packer’s Crown casino was denied a casino license in NSW, raising huge questions over the already partially built Barangaroo tower in Sydney.
