Meantime, Ballarat Base looks to set to become a streaming hospital to serve an overflow of metropolitan Covid cases.

It'll join Geelong as well as Bendigo, which came online as a streaming hospital last Saturday.

Ballarat Health Services acute operations director Ben Kelly says they're yet to receive formal direction, but it looks inevitable.

"Geelong is a steaming hospital, Bendigo came online as a streaming hospital on Saturday."

"I think its inevitable that Ballarat will become a streaming hospital but we haven't received that formal advice as yet," Mr Kelly said.
