A number of train lines in Melbourne’s CBD have been added to Victoria’s COVID-19 exposure sites.

Late on Sunday night, the health department added six train routes on the Upfield lines to the Tier 2 sites after a person with COVID-19 caught public transport.

They were from Merlynston Station to Flinders Street and Melbourne Central Station on three separate days last week.

Anyone who was on the same train has been urged to get tested and isolate for a negative result.

There are now 390 sites where exposure to the virus may have occurred.

Late on Saturday, the Department of Health expanded the list to include 7-Eleven Campbellfield, Psarakos Market in Thornbury, Coles Greenvale and Woolworths Preston South, as well as the attached BWS.

The Victorian health department on Saturday said it expects to remove around 150 exposure sites over the coming days.

Locations in Brunswick and Cranbourne had vanished from the list overnight on Sunday.

As of Monday morning, there were 354 sites on the list.
