Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Beyonce tower, a skyscraper construction site in Melbourne's central business district, is in lockdown after a dozen cases of COVID-19 were confirmed among building workers. Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union said “Up to 20 close or casual contacts with other workers have been identified. All workers identified as being in close and casual contact with the confirmed cases were immediately sent home and ordered to get tested and to self-isolate until they received their test results."

The CMFEU said workers on the Beyonce site were notified of the closure and an Incolink testing bus and medical team were on site to offer tests for all workers who were asymptomatic as a further safety measure.

The outbreak at the 780 apartment Premier Tower site on Spencer Street has prompted construction giant Multiplex to immediately halt work for a full hospital grade clean.

Multiplex said all workers at the site on Friday were asked to take a COVID-19 test and self-isolate until they got a negative result. Multiplex said "Work is expected to recommence early next week once testing results have been returned. Along with social distancing and masks, daily temperature checks are mandatory for all workers on Melbourne sites.”

Singapore-listed development company, Fragrance, is the owner of the 79-storey residential tower whose distinctive curving design is said be modelled on pop star Beyonce.
