They include Wangaratta businesses Treats Coffee Shop, Bosch Edward Street Butchers and Aroma Deli Cafe, Benalla's Rustik Cafe and Foodstore and Wodonga's Lee Corner Restaurant.
A deep clean must be undertaken by the business owner before an exposure site can reopen.
The owner is provided with cleaning guidelines from Victoria's health department, and once complete, a certificate of cleaning is provided back to the local public health unit of that region.
For a tier two exposure, the certificate is reviewed by the medical lead, while tier one sites are overseen by an occupational physician.
Victoria's infection prevention control advice response team only attends for more than 10 infections.
