The Victorian Government has announced further restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus.
For 7 days from midnight on Thursday 27th May 2021 there will be only 5 reasons to leave our homes:
- Food and supplies,
- Authorised work,
- Care and caregiving,
- Exercise, for up to two hours and with one other person, and
- Getting vaccinated.
“Exercise and shopping will be limited to five kilometres from home. If there’s no shops in your 5km radius, you can travel to the ones closest to you. Shopping is also limited to one person per day, per household.
Face masks will also need to be worn inside and outdoors – everywhere except your own home.
Private and public gatherings will not be permitted, although visiting your intimate partner continues to be okay. Single person bubbles will also be allowed.
Childcare and kinder will remain open, but schools will need to close other than for the children of authorised workers and vulnerable kids.
Shops like supermarkets, food stores, bottle shops, banks, petrol stations and pharmacies will also remain open. Cafes and restaurants will be able to offer take-away only. Gyms, hairdressers, community facilities and entertainment venues will all close. Non-essential retail may only open for click and collect.”
