The truck driver, a family member of an employee infected in an outbreak at The Butcher Club in Chadstone, sparked a cluster in Kilmore after dining inside the Oddfellows Cafe at the end of September.

Under his permitted worker status, the man was allowed to travel outside Melbourne, but not sit in a cafe to eat.
