The Department of Health has confirmed the Collie man who returned a 'very weak' positive COVID-19 result yesterday, is an historical case.
The man in his 30s, who had recently returned to Collie, had travelled back to Australia from Poland and quarantined in a Melbourne hotel for 14 days.
He tested negative to COVID-19 on all his tests while in hotel quarantine.
On his return to Collie, he was retested as part of Vic Health’s follow-up of people post-quarantine.
He returned a very weak positive result, which is sometimes seen in people with old, recovered infections.
In a statement, the Department said the man poses no threat to community health and has not been included as a positive case in WA statistics.
