Royal South Street in midst of Covid scare


Ballarat’s Royal South Street is in the midst of a covid scare after being exposed to an active case.

The performing arts group confirmed a positive case attended Founders Theatre on Saturday in both the morning and evening.

People who attended the theatre during the exposure period are being urged to get tested.

In a letter released to teachers, competition officer Julie Wiseman said Royal South Street was following all Department of Health directives to contact volunteers, staff and contractors.

"However, in addition to this, we of course wish to advise all of our competitors, teachers and families to ensure their safety and wellbeing as obviously care for our competitors, families and dance schools is paramount," the letter said.
