The Victorian Government has announced an extension of the current restrictions.

The lockdown has been extended until 11.59pm on Tuesday 27 July.

Additionally, travel to Victoria using Red Zone Permits will be temporarily paused. There are no changes to the current arrangements for border communities.

According to the Victorian Premier’s statement:

“There are only five reasons to leave home: getting the food and the supplies you need, exercising for up to two hours, care or caregiving, work or education if you can’t do it from home, or to get vaccinated at the nearest possible location.

Shopping and exercise must be done within 5kms of your home or the nearest location.

It also means face masks will remain mandatory indoors (not at home) and outdoors unless an exception applies – this includes all workplaces, and secondary schools.”

If you have any concerns about your employer’s response to the current restrictions and lockdown, please contact the ASU Member Contact Centre on 1300 855 570 or on

Most importantly, we urge you to stay safe and abide by all the current lockdown restrictions.
