Residents of Victoria’s coastal areas are telling visitors to stay away as Coronavirus cases rise in the state.

However, there have been reports of people still heading to their holiday getaways, regardless of government advice.

Simon Illingworth, a councillor for Corangamite Shire which takes in Great Ocean Road destinations like Port Campbell told the ABC ‘We just don’t want them here, to be honest.

‘Everyone’s doing the right thing, locking themselves away, and it’s being undermined by these transient tourists going from town to town doing nothing if not spreading the disease.”

The total coronavirus infections around the state increased on Sunday by 84 to 769.
