In the past week, dozens of Victorians were not home when public health officials and the Defense Force knocked their doors.
The Department of Health and Human Services and Security personnel visited 500 homes after the health authorities had not been able to reach people.
There were 29 cases where this week, when doorknocked, people didn’t respond.
“They’ve been referred to Victoria Police,” Premier Daniel Andrews said.
“If you are supposed to be at home isolating, you are supposed to be at home doing just that.”
From today, the government plans to increase the staff from 58 to 90.
“Each and every positive case, everyone who gets a positive result from the laboratory will be door knocked and visited by an ADF and DHHS team,” Mr Andrews said.
“Not just for compliance but making sure that every single positive case knows and understands what we are asking them to do and what they need to do.
“It’s an opportunity for us to say to them, what do you need from us, what can we do to support you and obviously unique circumstances?”
Every who has tested positive to coronavirus should expect to be visited.
