Indigo Shire has been listed with an active COVID-19 case for the first time in the pandemic.
The Victorian Department of Health and Human Service's daily update on Sunday, August 9, recorded one active case for the North East local government area.
The update did not specify where the positive test was conducted or where the person was now located.
A Department of Health and Human Services spokesman said the department could not comment on individual cases.
"The department responds to every case of coronavirus after it is notified to us," he said on Monday morning.
"There are strict procedures in place to protect the public wherever someone tests positive to coronavirus.
"All close contacts are identified and notified that they need to self-isolate and seek testing.
"As part of our contact tracing, relevant public exposure sites are contacted and provided with advice about the transmission risks and any cleaning that may be required."
Beechworth Health Service confirmed late on Monday it knew no further details about the case.
MORE CORONAVIRUS NEWS:
The department's local government data is continually analysed and clarified.
Each day the department reclassifies some of the state's cases, largely due to duplication, so individual local government area numbers are subject to change.
Residential location is the residential address provided when a case is notified to the department, not necessarily where the person was infected and may not be where the individual currently lives.
The Department of Health and Human Services has previously declined to provide further location details about individual cases, citing privacy concerns.
