One COVID-19 case has been re-assigned back to the Northern Grampians local government area.
Latest DHHS figures show there is one active case in the Northern Grampians and four total cases - including recovered. Yesterday, it had dropped to zero active cases and three historical cases.
Active cases are often re-assigned due to errors with residential information or tests accidentally being counted twice, among other reasons.
One active case remains in Ararat.
There are still five active cases in Horsham and two active cases in West Wimmera.
No active cases have been reported in the Hindmarsh or Yarriambiack shires.

"Every single VCE student will be individually assessed and any adverse impacts from COVID-19 will be reflected in their ATAR score," he said.
School closures, increases in family responsibilities, absences and the mental health and wellbeing of students during the pandemic will be taken into account.
"Students will go into VCE exams with confidence knowing they will not be impacted by COVID-19," Mr Merlino said.
"Their final scores will be a fair reflection of their year."
