A cluster of COVID-19 cases has emerged at the Canberra Hospital after it was revealed a baby had tested positive to the virus.

Testing of family members and staff had now returned at least one additional positive infection.

Investigations into how the baby, who was being cared for in the special care nursery at the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children, remains ongoing.
