In breaking news overnight — Victorian authorities have reintroduced coronavirus restrictions after a hotel quarantine worker tested positive. Masks are now mandatory inside. The cap on gatherings has been reduced and plans to bring three-quarters of Melbourne's workforce back to the office have been paused. The 26-year-old quarantine worker is a support officer in the Australian Open quarantine program and his diagnosis has forced up to 600 players and staff into temporary isolation until they return a negative test result. The Australian Open has shut down today's lead-up matches as a result.
