HORSHAM has four active cases of COVID-19 while surrounding postcodes in the Horsham Rural City region have three, new data reveals.
Victoria's Health Department revealed the location of positive COVID-19 cases by postcode on Friday.
The data has since been collated by volunteer-run website 'COVID Live'.
A state government spokesperson confirmed to a Wimmera Mail-Times journalist that the data was accurate on Friday night.
Previously, the smallest area of detail possible was local government areas, where the Horsham Rural City council area was deemed to have seven active cases.
The new data reveals that there are four active COVID-19 cases in Horsham with the postcode 3400. The area has had seven in total since the pandemic began.
3401 - an area stretching from as high as Wallup to as low as Rocklands Reservoir, including Pimpinio, Longerenong, Jung, Quantong and Telangatuk - has two active cases. This region has had three cases in total.
3409 - a postcode further west including Arapiles, Natimuk and Noradjuha - had one active case as of Friday, and one case in total.
Further north-west of Horsham, the newest data shows that postcode 3418 has one active case. This region includes Nhill, Gerang Gerung, Lawloit, Kiata and Yanac.
Data released by the DHHS on Friday said there were zero cases in the Hindmarsh shire region and one in the West Wimmera shire region.
Other surrounding regions, such as Dimboola, Murtoa, St Arnaud, Balmoral and Edenhope do not have active cases in their postcodes.
The Stawell-region with the postcode 3380 has one active case.
All of the data can be found at the COVID Live website.
Member for Lowan Emma Kealy called the release of the new data a "win" for the region, but reminded residents not to ignoring health and safety recommendations even if their postcode had no active cases.
