The Indigo Shire has its first COVID delta case with a resident being treated at a Melbourne hospital.
It was revealed on Sunday after testing on Saturday.
Albury Wodonga Health has declined to say which part of the shire the patient comes from, due to privacy considerations.
However, Rubens of Beechworth Hairdressing has identified itself as an exposure site after a client who visited last Wednesday tested positive.
