The Victorian Government has today announced a further easing of Covid-19 restrictions from 11.59pm on Thursday 24 June.
Importantly, the restriction that ‘if you can work from home you should work from home’ has been removed.
Masks must still be worn inside. But more people can return to offices, with 75% capacity – or 30 people in a workplace – whichever is greater. Density limits will apply of 1 person per 4 sqm in metropolitan Melbourne and 1 person per 2 sqm in regional Victoria.
Other changes include:
“Private visitors to the home will increase from two in Melbourne, and five in regional Victoria to 15 across the entire state – and up to 50 people can gather outside in a public place like a park.
Funerals and weddings will be capped at 300 people, and hospitality venues can serve up to 300 in Melbourne, but density limits still apply.
Players, parents and spectators can attend outdoor community sport within the total cap of 1,000 people.
And live music will have greater numbers in pubs, clubs and other hospitality venues across the state too, but dance floors are still closed for now.
Theatres will initially open at 50% capacity, with up to 1,000 people. And this weekend crowds can attend public events and outdoor stadiums with a limit of 50%, or up to 25,000 people.”
The Victorian Government has signalled that these new restrictions will be in place for at least two weeks before any further loosening.
