Three Sydney removalists who sparked a Covid outbreak in Melbourne that sent Victoria into its fifth lockdown are unlikely to face any charges.

The workers travelled from Sydney's Covid-ravaged western suburbs to Melbourne to deliver furniture at multiple locations, before travelling to South Australia

The men were accused of not wearing masks and being in breach of their working permit conditions. 

However the Herald Sun has revealed police are set to close the case without punishing the removalists.

The Covid-infected Sydney removalists were found to have not broken any rules after delivering furniture to the Maribyong Apartment Complex

The workers were found to have not broken any rules, except for one man who could be fined $1,000 for not wearing a mask. 

They all had the appropriate permits to enter the state despite the Harbour City's spiralling number of Covid cases which has now surpassed 1,500 cases. 

Victoria Covid-19 Commander Jeroen Weimar said the removalists were not wearing masks as exemptions are granted for strenuous activities like carrying furniture. 

As a result, numerous residents were infected with the virus at Ariele Apartments in Melbourne's eastern suburbs, sending the entire building and its 200 residents into quarantine for 14 days.

It comes as a pub owner in remote Echuca, in northern Victoria near the NSW border, was fined more than $22,000 for opening his hotel against lockdown rules.
