Victoria to enter 5 day lockdown, Regional Areas Included

Victoria is set to endure another snap-lockdown, which will come into effect from 11:59pm tonight.

It is set to be in place for 5 days until 11:59pm on Tuesday, and will mirror the restrictions that were in place during a similar lockdown just weeks ago.

There will be the five reasons to leave the house, and masks will also be required when outdoors.

It comes as two outbreaks in Victoria grow to 18 overall cases, with around 6,500 people across the state currently isolating as contact tracing continues.

Premier Daniel Andrews did provide some hope that some regional communities may be able to exit the lockdown sooner, if public health advice allows.

From the Statement From The Premier

On the advice of Acting Chief Health Officer, Victoria will go into lockdown tonight, meaning there are only five reasons to leave home from 11:59pm on Thursday 15 of July 2021.

That means you can only leave home to get the food and the supplies you need, for exercise for up to two hours and no more than 5kms from your home, for care or caregiving, work or education if you can’t do it from home or to get vaccinated at the nearest possible location.

These restrictions will be in place for five days.

A list of authorised work and workers is available online here – but you all know the drill.

If you were an authorised worker during the last lockdown, you’ll be an authorised worker this time around. Everyone else must work from home.

Last night we announced that face masks must be worn indoors at all times (except at home) and outdoors when it’s not possible to physically distance.

Under today’s announcement, face masks must also be worn outdoors at all times.
